U.S. Senator Jon Tester, facing a tough re-election campaign this year, is hoping women voters will give him the push he needs to be elected to a third term in this increasingly Republican-leaning state.

The Democrat says history will determine whether the Women’s March was a moment or a movement still, “It certainly has the feel of a movement at this moment in time.”

Kathleen Williams, Democratic candidate for the U.S. House, says the government is close to broken.  But instead of continuing to grouse about the hyper-partisanship in Congress, she says she wants to try to fix the problem. 

That wouldn't be the first time.

State Rep. Tom Woods of Bozeman says there wasn’t one specific incident that was the tipping point that led him to become a candidate for Montana’s lone U.S. House seat.  The Democrat says he's just  frustrated with the direction the country is currently heading.

This includes the millions of dollars it takes to run for Congress.

Retired state district judge Russ Fagg made it official:  he’s a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate. The announcement comes after a 4 month exploratory effort that Democrats have called a stealth campaign.   

"I love the people of the state," says Fagg, standing on a flatbed trailer parked in a helicopter hanger at Billings Flying Service. "I love the natural beauty of the state and so tonight for the very first time I am publicly announcing that I am going to run for the U.S. Senate."
