A longtime democratic state legislator has officially filed to run for Montana’s lone Congressional seat.
Billings Senator Kim Gillan is running for the seat being vacation by U.S. Senate Candidate, Republican Denny Rehberg.
Gilllan has five opponents who have announced their intention to run in the Democratic Congressional Primary. She says she is the candidate with the best shot to win in November because of her long track record of bringing results to the state.
“I’ve served in leadership 7 out of my 8 sessions. And in that leadership it was my responsibility to make sure that we solve problems, that we found the coalition that it was necessary to pass bills without compromising Democratic values,” Gillan said.
Gillan works as the workforce development coordinator with MSU Billings. She says that amounts to 25 years of working in economic development and job creation.
