As a Montana voter, I am looking forward to debates all across Montana between the Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate. Sen. Tester has been in the news for his positions on many issues, so it would be wonderful for voters to start hearing and watching debates between the Republicans.

The June 5 primary is fast approaching, so all voters, not just county Republican groups, need to learn about the Republican candidates. It will be the common sense, average Montanan who will make the difference at the ballot box. Young voters and veterans are probably the fastest growing groups of voters, so they should also be able to attend and participate in such debates.
