Loge offers balanced viewpoint

| May 8, 2024 12:00 AM

Denley Loge first ran for election as state representative for Sanders, Mineral, and Missoula counties in 2016. Even though he ran as a Republican, I not only supported him, but I had also encouraged him to run.

I had known Denley for the eight years I was his Democratic state senator for those same counties (2001-2009) and he helped me as I campaigned for that position—twice. So while Denley decided to be a Republican, I thought he was the same Denley who would listen respectfully to people with opposite views and make sensible decisions based on a balanced viewpoint.

I still think that, and so I encourage a vote for Denley Loge in the Republican primary election for Senate District 45.
