On behalf of the Montana Republican Party, I wish you and your family a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
2021 was a great year to be a Republican in Montana.
In November 2020, we paved the way for red wave election that provided historic wins for Montanans. Over the past year, we’ve seen clear benefits of coming together to elect conservative leadership.
Together, we made great strides in making The Last Best Place an even better place to live, work, raise a family, and achieve the American Dream.
By cutting taxes and reducing red tape, defending our Second Amendment rights from Federal overreach, and balancing a budget, Montana’s Republican elected officials delivered results not seen in far too long.
From prohibiting vaccine passports and standing up for parental rights, to banning sanctuary cities and strengthening election integrity, to protecting unborn babies by passing critical pro-life measures and defending Montanans’ right to freely exercise their religion, Montana Republicans fulfilled promises they made to voters in the last election and are moving the state forward.
And under Governor Gianforte’s leadership, Montana got reopened for business, matched the lowest unemployment rate ever recorded in Montana, and we have more Montanans working than ever before.
Senator Steve Daines and our Congressman Matt Rosendale continue fighting each day to uphold our conservative principles and defend our Montana way of life in Washington D.C.
They’ve served us well in proudly standing up to the extreme far-left agenda of the Biden Administration while also putting forth commonsense solutions that will protect Montanans and making Washington D.C. work for Montanans.
While our Republican leaders have been fighting to defend our way of life, Jon Tester, Joe Biden, and Democrats in Washington D.C. have continued to fail us at every level this past year.
Between record inflation to empty shelves this holiday season, the paychecks of hardworking Montana families are being stretched thinner and thinner.
And from the tragically botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, to the ongoing crisis at our Southern border and our reliance on foreign countries for energy, our nation is more vulnerable and weaker than ever under Democrat control.
I believe that with each challenge, comes an opportunity. And 2022 will be no different for us.
I’m confident that 2022 will be another historic year for Republicans in Montana.
Together, we have the opportunity to send not one, but two Republican members of Congress back to Washington D.C. to represent us and clean up the mess Jon Tester and Joe Biden have created.
Together, we can continue to elect even more Republicans to serve in the Montana state legislature to protect our Montana freedoms and way of life.
After a year of historic wins for the Montana Republican Party, I know that we’re just getting started.
As we continue moving Montana forward in 2022, know that we’re better together.
Happy New Year and God Bless,
Don “K” Kaltschmidt
