The Democrats' Last, Best Hope


Jon Tester, United States senator, is face down in the mud. Earlier today, Tester and his wife, Sharla, drove from Great Falls, Mont., to their home, T-Bone Farms, 80 miles northeast. It’s a journey the Testers have been making nearly every weekend since Jon joined the Senate in January 2007. As usual, they followed the Teton River through sloping sandstone canyons and out onto a vast expanse of flat, treeless farmland, with only the occasional man-made interruption: the United Grain silos in Kershaw, the Ace High Casino in Loma, a billboard about chewing tobacco. “Quitting Was ...


Tester: Even Montanans Are Complaining About Foreclosures


If Montanans are complaining, it must be serious. “Montana is not a state where people come to their U.S. senator just willy-nilly,” Sen. Jon Tester (D., Mont.) said during a hearing Tuesday on the foreclosure mess, arguing that there’s no question problems with foreclosure documents and lenders operations go far beyond a few isolated incidents. His home state has just 950,000 residents and still he has staff members spending “a ton of time” on foreclosure-related problems, Mr. Tester said, detailing two cases involving Bank of America Corp. Mr. Tester ...


Sen. Tester touts food safety exemption for small farmers


Sen. Jon Tester met with his fellow farmers on Friday to explain how he'd kept them out of new federal food regulations. "When I first saw the bill, it didn't take into consideration farmers markets and direct marketing," Tester said during a visit to the Good Food Store in Missoula. "In the end, it would have eliminated your ability to sell at farmers markets." S. 510 imposes new requirements for food safety and quality. While he agreed the bill is necessary to keep dangers like salmonella and E. coli contamination out of the nation's food supply, Tester said it shouldn't wipe out the ...

The Fall TV Season’s Senate Air Wars
The November elections are still nearly a year away, but the TV air wars over Senate seats have officially begun in earnest.

Billings Gazette: Finally, a measure of highway certainty for Montana
After years of passing patches that lasted only months or weeks, Congress finally delivered a multi-year Highway Bill. That’s great news, especially for Montana, because our vast, sparsely populated state depends on federal funding for about 87 percent of our highway construction budget. The other 13 percent comes from the state’s 27 cents per gallon...
The Missoulian: Tester a champion of access to outdoors
We’ve all seen these people in Montana’s outdoors: the angler who spends only a single day on the river each year, yet shows off an expensive handmade rod that most of us would die for; the big-city hunter decked out in top-of-the-line gear who writes a big check to shoot a trophy. While there’s nothing...
