A note from Kiersten Iwai

Dear Meghan, 

#ICYMI: We brought back our bus days!

To kick-off primary election season, our team traveled across the state to host four congressional forums in the Western District, and one in the Eastern District. It was a whirlwind week filled with heartfelt moments, like a hug between Republican candidate Mitch Heuer and Democratic candidate Monica Tranel. Despite stark differences in approaches to policy solutions, all candidates respected each other for showing up for voters.

As the week went on, candidates began to speak more about what united them versus what divided them. One thing they all agreed on? Montanans deserve a representative who will stand up for them in Congress.

Attendees also connected with candidates at the forums, discussing important topics centered on the future of this state we all call home

These forums gave me a lot of hope for the future of our democracy and state. They demonstrated what politics can and should be: voter-centric, policy-focused, accessible, and when tensions run high, we break to share a laugh.

If you’re having a bit of FOMO about missing the forums, check out our website for the recordings, Twitter threads, and articles about the week.
