On Saturday, MTN News hosts a debate between the two candidates in the 2020 race for Montana's lone U.S. House seat: Republican Matt Rosendale and Democrat Kathleen Williams.

The debate will air on all MTN stations at 6 p.m. on Saturday; it will also be available to watch on-demand on all MTN streaming apps.

The debate will be moderated by a panel featuring MTN Chief Political Reporter Mike Dennison, Jay Kohn (KTVQ Billings Anchor Emeritus), and Jill Valley (KPAX Missoula/Kalispell Anchor and Reporter).

Rosendale, Montana's Republican state auditor, is making his second bid to become a member of Montana's congressional delegation. Rosendale came close in his 2018 bid to unseat Sen. Jon Tester.

Williams, a Democrat from Bozeman, is making her second bid to represent Montana in the U.S. House. The former three-term state legislator came up short in her bid to upset Congressman Greg Gianforte in 2018.
