Tim Sheehy, a Montana Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, recently made a stop in Big Timber. On October 23, Sheehy sat down at the Big Timber Bakery for a meet and greet.
During the visit, Sheehy met with residents and spoke with them about his vision to bring in a new generation of conservative leadership, fielded questions, and heard about issues that were top of mind for attendees ahead of the 2024 election.
“It was a pleasure to sit down with and hear from folks in Big Timber about what matters most to them. Here’s what I heard: people are fed up with the career politicians, and America needs a new generation of conservative leaders who love our country and actually want to solve problems,” Tim Sheehy said. “I’m running for the U.S. Senate because our campaign is about service, duty, and country — not politics as usual.”
According to his campaign website, Tim Sheehy is a former Navy SEAL Officer who earned multiple combat decorations, including the Bronze Star with Valor for Heroism in Combat and the Purple Heart Medal. Sheehy founded Bridger Aerospace in 2014, and led the growth of Bridger Aerospace and its sister company, Ascent Vision Technologies, ultimately taking Bridger Aerospace public on the NASDAQ in 2023.
Sheehy also owns Little Belt Cattle Company which provides vertically integrated beef production through its Certified Montana Beef program, giving Montana ranchers more local alternatives to the big four meat packers.
Sheehy serves as the CEO of Bridger, and is an active firefighting pilot.
Sheehy and his wife Carmen have four children. Carmen is also a veteran, serving as a US Marine in Afghanistan.
