Libertarians have new U.S. Senate candidate in MT race

Lewis and Clark County Commissioner Susan Good Geise said Wednesday she’ll be the Libertarian Party’s new candidate in Montana’s U.S. Senate race – replacing a last-minute withdrawal.

Geise, a Republican county commissioner, told MTN News she contacted the Libertarians after reading about what appeared to be a “faux Libertarian” who had filed and then withdrawn last week, leaving them without a candidate in the high-profile race.

“They needed a candidate very quickly, and I needed an avenue to express my support … about the need for the rule of law, which I believe has been severely eroded over the last several years,” she said.
