While most people were focusing upon Ned Lamont's huge Blogosphere Day, Jon Tester's support across the netroots actually raised over $5,000 on Act Blue yesterday. Which is great news, because it will allow more people to see his new campaign ad:
Just West of Big Sandy in Montana's Golden Triangle, sits a farm that has stood the test of time.
Where success is measured not by what you do for yourself, but by what you pass on to others.
This is where four generations of Testers have lived that way of life.
Jon Tester. Once a schoolteacher, now a grandfather, always a farmer.
Outraged by the rate hikes following Montana Power's deregulation, he ran for the State Senate.
Worked with Governor Schweitzer to eliminate taxes on 13,000 businesses, invested in our schools, and made Montana a leader in renewable energy -- without raising taxes.
Now Jon Tester's running for the U.S. Senate to teach Washington something new.
Honest government. Energy independence. And to stop the waste that passes on debt to our children.
Lessons first learned on that farm, not far from Big Sandy.
