Republican U.S. Senate candidates Fagg, Rosendale report latest fundraising totals

HELENA – Former state judge Russell Fagg, one of several Republicans vying to challenge U.S. Sen. Jon Tester this year, reported Tuesday that he raised $615,000 in campaign funds through December – his first campaign-finance report.

Fagg, a former state district judge from Billings, also said that 80 percent of the money came from individual Montanans.

“This outpouring of local support shows that Republicans are excited about a conservative, fourth-generation Montanans who represents their values and can defeat Jon Tester in a general election,” he said in a statement.
