BOZEMAN – Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Matt Rosendale said Wednesday in Bozeman that President Trump’s upcoming visit to Billings is an honor for both the state and himself.

Rosendale, Montana’s state auditor and insurance commissioner, said Trump’s second visit to Montana to support his campaign to unseat incumbent Democrat Jon Tester signifies momentum in the campaign.

“The people of Montana expect someone to go to Washington, D.C. and to do the work back here that they tell us to do, and Jon Tester hasn’t done that. That is why President Trump is coming out here to set the record straight and support my campaign,” Rosendale said.

Trump will address a waiting crowd at 7 p.m Thursday at MetraPark Arena in Billings. Rosendale will also have remarks for the visitors. During the president’s last visit to Great Falls, many people had to be turned away because there was not enough room inside the venue. Lines are expected to form early for the event.
