Montana’s U-S House candidates took traditional party stances when questioned about how they would balance the federal budget.
The comments came during a debate on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation.
Democratic challenger Denise Juneau said as state school superintendent she runs one of the largest agencies in the state, the Office of Public Instruction.
“And we do a fantastic job of making sure that those funds are distributed, so I get budgeting,” she told the crowd.
Juneau said the problem with the federal budget is corporate tax loopholes.
