After a series of stunning recruitment failures, over the weekend Russell Fagg announced his Montana Senate campaign — but even Republicans didn’t want him to run and he enters a divisive and potentially expensive GOP Primary.
From Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Spokesman, David Bergstein: “Russell Fagg enters the Montana Republican primary already facing ethical questions, including whether he violated federal campaign finance laws by serving as a sitting judge while simultaneously campaigning for office. Fagg is not the establishment Republican’s first choice candidate, nor is he the pick of anti-establishment forces who are wreaking havoc in primaries across the country. Fagg’s entrance into this ever-growing primary is sure to cause Republicans headaches in the months ahead.”
