Fake Rancher Matt Rosendale Blows Off Farmers — Again
 
Helena, MT – Fake Rancher Maryland Matt Rosendale again is refusing to meet with the Montana Farmers Union, after already blowing them off last May. During the primary, Rosendale passed on an invitation to participate in a forum hosted by the MFU, citing “scheduling conflicts,” and reassuring voters that he has “deep ties to the agricultural community.” 

Rosendale was no doubt referring to his numerous claims of being a rancher, in his stump speechesop-edspaid advertisementssocial media accounts, and press releasesBut reports and public records showed that he has never owned any cattle or ranched his own land. Rosendale’s repeated refusals to meet with farmers show his true colors. Rather than meet with Montanans to discuss vital issues, Rosendale remains focused on furthering his own political career at the expense of working Montanans.

Kathleen Williams, on the other hand, has a plan to fight for rural Montana. As Montana’s next Congresswoman, Kathleen will fight to:

  • Reclaim Congress’ seat at the table when it comes to tariff and trade negotiations. Congress has abdicated this authority and the American people deserve better. 
  • Continue to work to help farmers and ranchers diversify their incomes to stay on the land if they choose.
  • Foster agricultural research to advance new ways to raise food and fiber that benefits Montana and the world.
  • Ensure the Farm Bill is getting the job done for Montana.
  • Work towards reversing the consolidation of farming enterprises and the erosion of individual farmer clout, including under the Packers and Stockyards Act.
  • Protect water rights and advance related infrastructure solutions that ensure we balance water use with the health of our rivers.
  • Foster rural Montanans’ access to healthcare by permanently funding Community Health Centers rather than using them as political footballs.
