"A candidate's response to the RTLMT PAC questionnaire, his or her record as an incumbent, interviews, and recommendations from people who know the candidates are all criteria used in selecting candidates we will endorse or support in their bid for election to public office... We applaud and encourage your efforts in the difficult public arena and your willingness to serve the people of Montana. We are counting on you to continue the reputation you have established as a person who cares about life itself, enough to fight for it on others' behalf.
