On the campaign trail, current State Auditor and Insurance Commissioner Matt Rosendale spoke with KGVO News on Thursday about his plan to ‘Reignite our Economy’ should he be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in November.

Rosendale said there are eight parts to his plan.

“Providing long term regulatory relief,” began Rosendale. “Unleashing investment in American business; creating a permanent pro-growth tax code; protecting businesses from pandemic liability; incentivizing work over welfare; reining in government spending; developing our natural resources and finally connecting our rural communities.”

Rosendale said he is already receiving positive reinforcement for his plan from current Republican House members.

“I’ve been very fortunate to have been receiving recognition and calls from current members of the United States House,” he said. “They’ve been discussing this plan on our business program, and so to make sure that we are all on the same track on what we can do next year to incentivize our businesses and get our growth plan back on track, as well as many of the healthcare reforms that I’ve been able to implement, that many of them will be able to take advantage of, as well.”

Rosendale said, if elected in November, that he will be able to reach across the aisle to the Democratic majority to promote his ideas.

“I’ve demonstrated in my time, not just in the Montana Legislature, or as the State Auditor that I’ve been able to get very diverse groups together to support good concepts because they recognize that they will be in the best interests of the state and or the nation,” he said. “I think there are several of these components that a lot of people regardless of what party that they represent, that they will be representing their state and their nation first, and I think that we will be able to get support for many of these concepts.”

Rosendale said he has reached out to the campaign staff of his Democratic opponent in the general election Kathleen Williams on times and places for debates, and that September may be a possibility.
