County Commissioner Will Take on Rehberg

Bill Kennedy (D), a Yellowstone County commissioner, wants to challenge Rep. Denny Rehberg (R) for the state’s lone House seat.

Kennedy told the Laurel Outlook that he filed his candidacy papers Friday.

Jim Foley, an administrator with the University of Montana and a former aide to Sen. Max Baucus (D), also is weighing a bid for the Democratic nomination.

Foley said he does not have a timetable for making a decision on the House race.

Many pundits expected Rehberg to challenge Baucus for his Senate seat next year but Rehberg has shown no inclination to give up the post he has held since 2001.

Rehberg began April with a little more than $300,000 in the bank.
