Billings Woman Elsie Arntzen Officially Files to Run for U.S. House in Montana

This week, January 28, a third Republican candidate has officially signed up to run for the open U.S. House Seat set to be vacated by current congressman Steve Daines.

Billings area teacher and Montana state representative Elsie Arntzen describes what makes her different.

“My gender is different, but the largest thing that is going to differentiate me and that does currently, is that I’ve been in the legislature the longest. In other words, I’ve learned how to govern. There are going to be tough times and the main thing is –and this is where that classroom teacher comes in– communication.”

Arntzen says she wants to talk about fixing the health care system by replacing the Affordable Care Act with something better. She also wants to fight against what she sees as government overreach.

“What is definitely broken with Washington right now is the overspending. There is definite overreaching of government regulatory tentacles into Montana. We are the treasure state, we need to be able to use our resources.”

Arntzen will face off against State Senator Matt Rosendale and former State Senator Cory Stapleton in the Republican primary. Others have also declared to be in the race, but have not yet filed paperwork.
