Sheriff Slaughter’s switch to the GOP triggers response from Democrats

GREAT FALLS — Cascade County Sheriff Jesse Slaughter announced in a video several days ago that he plans to run for re-election – but unlike the 2018 election, which he won as a Democrat, this time he plans to run as a Republican.

Slaughter defeated incumbent Bob Edwards in the 2018 Democratic primary; Slaughter then defeated GOP candidate Bob Rosipal in the general election.
