Former Navy SEAL, aerial firefighter, and conservative candidate for U.S. Senate Tim Sheehy Monday held a meet and greet in Roundup at The Bean Counter before travelling to Winnett for a meet and greet at Petroleum County Community Center.
During the visit, Sheehy met with residents and spoke with them about both his vision to restore conservative leadership for Montana in U.S. Senate, retire Jon Tester, and issues that were top of mind for attendees ahead of the 2024 election.
“It was an honor to meet with folks across eastern Montana this week. Here’s what I heard – America needs conservative leaders who love our country and actually want to solve problems – not career politicians who just keep the status quo,” Tim Sheehy said. “I’m running for the U.S. Senate because our campaign is about service, duty, and country – not politics as usual.”
The visit to Roundup and Winnett came as part of a two-day swing in eastern Montana, where Sheehy is meeting with residents in 10 towns.
