Senator Jon Tester Officially Files for Re-Election in 2018 Senate Race

Helena – Today, Montana farmer and senator Jon Tester officially filed with the Secretary of State as a candidate for United States Senate. Sen. Tester was joined by his wife Sharla at the Montana State Capitol to file the paperwork.

In the Senate, Jon hopes to build off his strong record of fighting for the people of Montana. During his time in the Senate, Tester has defended Montana from outsiders—whether they be special interests trying to buy our elections, or folks trying to take away our public lands and personal freedoms. Tester has fought for Montana’s veterans, for better schools, and for better infrastructure, and this Congress has worked with President Trump to sign 12 of Jon’s bills into law.

“As a United States senator, I have had the humbling opportunity to defend the state that three generations of my family have called home,” Tester said. “Over the years, we’ve fought to protect the Montana we know and love from outsiders while continuing to hold government accountable. Today, I’m honored to file to continue that fight for the people of the best state in the best country in the world.”
