BOZEMAN, Mont. – Representative Steve Daines (R-MT) this morning put the Montana Secretary of State’s online filing system to use and used his iPhone to officially file as a candidate for Montana’s open U.S. Senate seat.
Standing in front of the home of RightNow Technologies, a Bozeman-based software company where Daines helped create hundreds of good-paying Montana jobs, Daines discussed his background in Montana’s technology sector and priorities for the 2014 Senate race.
Noting that technology has helped remove geography as a constraint for Montana businesses, Daines then used his iPhone to file as a candidate for the 2014 Senate race.
“At RightNow Technologies, I helped create hundreds of good-paying Montana jobs and grow a small software company into Bozeman’s largest commercial employer. We need more success stories in Montana—but too many small businesses are struggling under a mountain of regulations and miles of red tape and too many Montana kids are having to leave home to find good paying jobs,” Daines stated. “That’s why I’m running for Senate—to work toward solutions that grow Montana’s economy and to fight for more jobs, and less government.”
Daines announced his candidacy for Montana’s open Senate seat on November 6, 2013. A fifth-generation Montanan, sportsman and father of four, Daines currently serves Montana in the U.S. House of Representatives.
