The right guy

Posted on Thu, May 15, 2014 at 4:00 AM

As the elections come closer it’s becoming more evident that Champ Edmunds is what Montana needs. I am currently a sophomore at the University of Montana. Campus is full of opinions and campaigns for just about everything. And if there is one thing I can say for sure, it’s that there is always more to the story. We know Champ, a humble man who went into the race knowing he was the underdog. But the truth is in the facts. He is the only proven conservative in this race. He votes and stands his ground on the issues he cares about. This only proves that reelection and power are not of any concern to him. He wants what’s best for us. He knows Montana and he understands our values.

When I graduate I would like to look out onto a glorious Montanan future, but I fear student loans will leave me trapped. How can I move forward when I have so much holding me back? How can my generation ever possibly reach their fullest potential when we carry around the burden of our debts? Steve Daines has gone to Washington for us before. While there he raised the debt ceiling and voted for CISPA, a direct act of violence towards our privacy. If there is one thing we learned it’s this: he’s a moderate. He wasn’t there to fight. My fellow students and I need someone to fight for us. We Montanans need someone we can believe in. Champ will stand for us. When it comes to jobs, when it comes to our families, and when it comes to our privacy. Champ believes in the individuals and he believes in Montana.
