Yikes…Steve Bannon “Loves” Rosendale in Montana Senate GOP Primary
Helena – State Insurance Commissioner Matt Rosendale has the backing of former White House advisor and current Breitbart News Chairman Steve Bannon in his run for Senate, according to multiple Washington news reports Thursday.
The news comes after Bannon helped insurgent Roy Moore upset the establishment and win the GOP primary in Alabama on Tuesday.
The Hill reports Rosendale met with Bannon while he was still White House chief strategist, while Axios reports Bannon “loves” Rosendale.
It’s really no surprise, considering the controversial Senate Conservatives Fund and special interest group Club for Growth are already behind Rosendale. But still…yikes.
“This growing cast of characters Matt Rosendale is surrounding himself with unfortunately shows he is focused on outside special interests that are out of touch with Montana,” said Chris Meagher, spokesman for the Montana Democratic Party.
