Republican Fagg announces Senate run

Fourth-generation Montanan and 22-year District Judge Russ Fagg made a stop in Kalispell Monday to announce his candidacy for the U.S. Senate.

A small crowd gathered for Fagg’s announcement in front of the Flathead County Courthouse on the crisp, clear morning.

“It’s just about a perfect day in the Flathead Valley, and it’s an honor to be here,” Fagg said.

The Republican from Billings said he believes he has the best chance to unseat Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., in the election.
