Dem statewide office candidates speak in Havre

A number of statewide candidates spoke Sunday at the 2019 Pasma-Peck Democratic Dinner held by the Hill County Democratic Party, discussing their campaigns and their goals if elected.

After Montana Attorney General Tim Fox announced his candidacy for governor, a number of candidates from both the Republican and Democratic parties have announced their candidacy for the office.

Republicans Jon Bennion, a senior staff member in the attorney general’s office, and Austin Knudsen, former state house speaker, are running in the Republican primary, while Democrats Rep. Kim Dudik, D-Missoula, and Ralph Graybill, the governor’s chief legal counsel, have announced their candidacy.

Graybill and Dudik both spoke at the Pasma-Peck dinner.
