In my opinion, Congressman Daines would make a decent Senator. Plus, he would provide some much needed balance in the U.S. Senate.
Let’s see what he has to say.

I agree…he should go for that Senate seat, where the influence of the RINO’s are limited by the 100:1 headcount.
HOWEVER: I would still like to know where his head was at when he voted for that “rollover and die” budget/debt mess.. In my book he shot himself in the foot…and, I’ll define that further: Where I would have sent him $100 per month for his Senate bid war chest…I will now only send him a flat $100 once, until I am satisfied with his thought process on that vote! It appears to be a “sell out” to those “middle of the road fools” better known as LIBERALS. Compromising ones’ principles, and throwing one’s supporters (as noted by the 80% poll during his teletownhall) under the bus when it really counted – does NOT a great statesman make! Perhaps kissing 90% of his war chest goodbye will get his attention, eh?..

I don’t yet know what to think about Daines. His support of Tester’s “Wilderness” bill was unfortunate. Anyone who supports Tester’s lying and conniving WILL NOT get my vote. Voting against principle to “move the process along” is not high on my list of approved activities of a politician either.
It will be good to be rid of Baucus. As far as I’m concerned, he is one of the poster children for term limits. I only wish there were some process to recall and remove Tester from office!

I see that all the “sheep” are now using that insipid # thing. How sophomoric. Sorta’ # like # the # slash # through # a fsExjh# 7.##
Daines isn’t afraid of the “good ol’ boy faction” in Washington D.C. but that just may be his downfall. Is he too honest, sincere and non-corruptible to be a “good” politician?? His interests, so far, seem to lie with Montana first.

Thanks for all the great comments from everyone. Just one note on the wilderness bill. If I’m not mistaken- Daines has not endorsed Tester’s wilderness bill. In fact, the Tester camp has been complaining about that very fact- even though Tester’s bill hasn’t even passed the US Senate, while the forest jobs bill Daines is supporting actually passed the US House.
You may be referring to the North Fork…Dave Skinner summed that issue up pretty well here:
