Democrat campaigns in Richland County for House election

When U.S. House candidate Jared Pettinato spoke to area residents during his time in Richland County last week, the Democrat’s message was different than what is usually heard in eastern Montana.

While other candidates talk about the importance of oil in eastern Montana, Pettinato pointed to wind and trees as being vital to Montana’s economic future.

“A lot of people see potential in both those ideas,” Pettinato said. “Wind is the next treasure for the Treasure State.”
