MontanaPBS Debate Night | U.S. Senate

MontanaPBS will host United States Senate candidate debates this fall. On Saturday, September 29 in Missoula, Democratic incumbent Sen. Jon Tester and Republican Montana Auditor Matt Rosendale will discuss issues as they face off for a seat in the U.S. Senate.

This debate will broadcast at 7:00 p.m. across the state on MontanaPBS and will be studio based without a live audience. MontanaPBS journalists John Twiggs and Anna Rau will ask questions of the candidates and facilitate the discussion. The debates will be broadcast on Montana Public Radio Sunday, Sept. 30 at 6pm.

A unique format featuring an open discussion period will facilitate the exchange of ideas and policies. This debate cuts through the rhetoric, the advertising and the noise with the two candidates sitting at the same table discussing the country’s most important issues.
