But recently, Rosendale seems to be ashamed of Bannon, hiding his endorsement from Montanans and refusing to say whether or not he will keep or reject it after a poll showed Bannon’s support among Republican voters plummeting.

Key Points:

  • “As Steve Bannon’s star has faded in the Republican Party so have the fortunes of some of the primary candidates he was backing.”
  • “Several Senate candidates came into the GOP primary this cycle touting their ties to the former White House adviser only to see that advantage crash and burn…”
  • “Montana state auditor Matt Rosendale, who has neither welcomed nor dropped Bannon’s endorsement, is competing in a crowded GOP primary.”
  • “[a] superPAC funded by Uihlein, called Americas PAC, is behind him. The group, which also has ties to Bannon, has spent more than $336,000 on ads supporting Rosendale.”
