To the editor:

Matt Rosendale moved from a thriving business career to serving as a successful and conservative public servant who constantly focused on lower taxes while increasing efficiencies. He currently serves as Montana Auditor, also called the Commissioner for Insurance and Securities.

Elected to the Montana House of Representatives in 2011, Matt and I took on many challenges together. His constituents promoted him to the Montana Senate in 2013. That session the Speaker of the House appointed me as chair of the budget subcommittee for natural resources and transportation, and then-Senator Matt Rosendale was appointed vice chair.

Side-by-side, item-by-item, we examined proposed expenditures for six departments and we cut a ton of fat. In the 2015 Legislature, Republican senators showed confidence in Rosendale by choosing him as majority leader.

Then in 2016, Montana voters elected him Montana Auditor, which really made him Commissioner for Insurance and Securities. Immediately, he took on big issues, even while trimming operating expenses by 23 percent. As a member of the Land Board, Matt made good decisions. He is a hard worker and a real winner. I respect him.

As a candidate for U.S. Senate in 2018, he gained the ear of our great president. A few months ago, I was invited to the USMCA Treaty signing ceremony at the White House. Matt Rosendale was there, always promoting Montana interests.

The people of Montana need Matt’s sharp mind, energy, work ethic and Donald Trump connections in Washington, D.C.

I endorse Matt Rosendale for US Congress.

State Sen. Mike Cuffe
