Juneau keeps all Montanans focus of first debate

Superintendent of Public Instruction and U.S. House Candidate Denise Juneau came out swinging in the first of several debates scheduled between her and Republican Congressman Ryan Zinke before the November election.

Speaking from the Frazer School gymnasium, Juneau reminded Montanans that this race isn’t about her own interests or spending time on Fox News promoting her brand, which is Congressman Zinke’s game plan.

"I sometimes wonder if Congressman Zinke knows where Montana is,” Juneau said during the debate.

 Juneau reminded Montanans that this job as the lone representative for Montana in the U.S. House of Representatives is about protecting and supporting Montana’s land, economy and people.

 “Congressman Zinke’s been on a constant job hunt since getting elected, rather than serving the people of Montana,” said Nancy Keenan, executive director for the Montana Democratic Party. “Unlike her opponent, Denise Juneau isn’t auditioning for a job as Speaker of the House, Vice President for Donald Trump or Secretary of Defense. She’s been clear all along – just as she was tonight – that Montanans deserve a leader who will be a voice for all of us in Congress.”

The next debate is scheduled for 7 p.m., Thursday, at Petro Theater on the campus of Montana State University in Billings.
