Hamm launches campaign for U.S. House

Helena Democrat Kevin Hamm announced his candidacy for Montana’s Eastern U.S. House district this week.

Hamm, the chief operating officer of Treasure State Internet and Telegraph, said he’s running because Montanans in the Eastern District deserve an alternative to the conservative politics of incumbent Republican Rep. Matt Rosendale. Hamm described Rosendale as constantly voting against issues benefiting the district, like infrastructure.

However, it’s unclear whether Rosendale will seek a third term or make a second attempt to unseat U.S. Senator Jon Tester, a Democrat.

“I suspect he’s going to try to run for Senate against Tester. He’s certainly raising money like that’s his goal. You know, more power to him. Whatever Rosendale decides to do, I’m not worried about it,” Hamm said. “What I care about is actually representing the people of Montana. The big thing that’s happening in the Eastern District is not just the House race, but the state House, the state Senate races, all these county commission races. We need to make sure that reasonable, smart, understanding, caring voices are heard and are available for voters to choose.”
