Senator Larry Jent files for Attorney General
Former State Senator Larry Jent of Bozeman filed today to run for the office of Attorney General, stating that he was running in order to “keep Montana communities safe and seek justice for all Montanans.”
"Elections are about choices and debates are about differences; the people of Montana deserve a choice about the direction of our Department of Justice, which the Attorney General heads,” Larry Jent said. “The differences between me and the current Attorney General about running that important department and protecting the people are significant and will come out as the campaign progresses."
A graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the University of Colorado law school, Jent has practiced law in Bozeman for 32 years. He served in the Montana House of Representatives and State Senate for 14 years, until 2015 Jent served five years on active duty as a U.S. Army infantry officer and paratrooper, including an assignment as a Green Beret "A" team leader with the 10th Special Forces group; he later served in the U.S. Army Reserves and the Montana National Guard.
