This week, Lynda Moss joined the growing list of people preparing to run for Montana’s lone U.S. House seat in 2018. Moss is a former Montana state Senator from Billings who says her background makes her a strong candidate for the job.

"I have an amazing portfolio of experience," Moss said. "I have worked in the non-profit sector, in the world of philanthropy and foundations, as well as in the world of policy for over 30 years, so I have a lifetime of experience working in public service."

Moss says healthcare is a universal right and that she would support big reforms to health care like Medicare for all, however, she’s does not see eye-to-eye with Donald Trump on any topic.

"I am very concerned about many of the executive orders, the undermining of access to health care for women, undermining some of the checks and balances that we have within our financial industries... I don't think I have any place where i really support the work that our current president has set forth," Moss said

Montana's Democratic Primary for the U.S. House seat is filling up fast. Montana State representative Tom Woods, is already in the race along with Grant Kier of Missoula and Billings attorney John Heenan. Incumbent Republican Greg Gianforte has already declared he is running again.
