Curtis Takes Offensive Against Daines In Senate Debate

U.S. Senate candidates Steve Daines and Amanda Curtis met for their first and only televised debate in Billings on Oct. 20, 2014.

Curtis said several times that Daines is too extreme for Montana and represents corporate interests over average Montanans. She says it's time to send a working-class Montanan to represent the state in Washington D.C.

Curtis also said Daines' vote last year to shut down the federal government during a budget stalemate hurt Montanans.
