This week, Austin Knudsen announced his candidacy for Montana Attorney General for the 2020 election.
Knudsen is a 5th generation Montanan, current Roosevelt County Attorney and former two-time Speaker of the House. He told KGVO News there are two issues he wants to vigorously pursue if elected as the state’s Attorney General.
“Meth is beyond epidemic in this state,” said Knudsen. “What I’ve learned being a county attorney and prosecuting this stuff , dealing with federal law enforcement and task forces, is that the days of people cooking poor quality meth in their kitchens are pretty well over. The meth we’re seeing coming into the state of Montana is almost exclusively Mexican meth. It’s very, very high quality and it’s being smuggled in through our porous southern border.”
