Senator Jon Tester will become Montana’s Senior Senator-- in only his 2nd term—once Senator Max Baucus is, as expected, confirmed as the new U.S. Ambassador to China.
News Director Sally Mauk is in Washington D.C. this week, interviewing both Senators about the transition.
In tonight’s feature interview, Sally talks with Senator Tester about his longtime mentor. Tester says he was star struck when he first met Baucus at an economic development meeting in Havre in the late 90s, just before Tester himself entered politics.
