The Citizens United Political Victory Fund (CUPVF), the affiliated Political Action Committee (PAC) of Citizens United, endorsed Matt Rosendale in a statement on Monday to challenge Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) in the 2018 Senate midterm election.
Citizens United President David Bossie said in a statement, “CUPVF is proud to support conservative change agent Matt Rosendale for U.S. Senator from Montana. Commissioner Rosendale will come to the U.S. Senate and join the fight to reform our broken health care system, which includes repealing and replacing Obamacare before it completely collapses. America needs a new generation of conservative Senators who listen to their constituents and keep their promises. Montanans deserve a Senator who represents their interests, not Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi’s interests.”
Bossie, who served as President Donald Trump’s deputy campaign manager, added, “Matt Rosendale understands that Washington is broken and that career politicians are a big reason why. I’m looking forward to working with Matt and other likeminded citizen-politicians to enact term limits for Congress.”
Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) endorsed state auditor and rancher Matt Rosendale to challenge Sen. Jon Tester in the 2018 Senate midterm election.
Sen. Cruz said in a statement, “Matt Rosendale has fought hard to shrink government and preserve liberty for Montana residents, during his time in the state legislature and more recently as a state auditor. It’s time to let Matt take that fight to Washington, we need strong conservative reinforcements in the Senate.”
Rosendale also earned the endorsements from over 30 Montana elected officials and prominent conservative groups such as the Club for Growth, the Senate Conservatives Fund, and the prominent pro-Donald Trump super PAC the Great America Alliance.
“As a legislator and now as the State Auditor, I’ve always done what I’ve said I was going to do,” Rosendale charged. “People know that I mean business and will get the job done in the U.S Senate.”
“Commissioner Rosendale supports the same common sense conservative reform agenda that millions and millions of Americans support, such as enforcing immigration laws, ending sanctuary cities and enacting pro-growth tax reform to grow our economy and create jobs. I urge all Republican primary voters in Montana to support conservative outsider Matt Rosendale for the United States Senate,” Bossie concluded.
