Rosendale’s Latest Lie: “You’ll see me in Whitefish”

Helena – If it’s another day, it’s another lie from wealthy East Coast developer Matt Rosendale. This time, after news broke this morning that Rosendale was bailing on a debate with Sen. Jon Tester, Rosendale lied to reporters, claiming that he had never agreed to the debate.

In reality, though, NBC Montana reported that “Just last week, Rosendale told us he would definitely make the broadcasters debate. In a phone interview last Wednesday Rosendale said, ‘You’ll see me in Whitefish; I just I hope that everyone is going to be able to participate and that Jon Tester isn’t able to control this thing and keep the other parties from participating.’”

Key Points:

  • “Montana’s GOP nominee for U.S. Senate is turning down a debate with incumbent Sen. Jon Tester.”
  • “Monday morning the association told us Rosendale declined to appear.”
  • “Just last week, Rosendale told us he would definitely make the broadcasters debate. In a phone interview last Wednesday Rosendale said, ‘You’ll see me in Whitefish; I just i hope that everyone is going to be able to participate and that Jon Tester isn’t able to control this thing and keep the other parties from participating.’”
  • “After Rosendale said that we called the Montana Broadcasters Association. A spokesman told us Rosendale is not right about the exclusion of third-party candidates and pointed to the group’s criteria for debate participation.”
  • “Now, just days later, Rosendale’s campaign sticks with the decision not to participate Sunday.”
