Missoula, MT (KGVO-AM News) - After the widely publicized floor fight in Washington, D.Cto choose a new Speaker of the U.SHouse of Representatives, the nation learned more about a group called the Freedom Caucus that stands for deeply conservative principles. Now, in Montana, State Senator Theresa Manzella introduced the newly created Montana branch, called the Montana Freedom Caucus, all members of the state legislature, to the KGVO Talk Back audience. Senator Manzella introduced the new Montana Freedom Caucus “Congressman Matt Rosendale reached out to me in September, and asked if I would be interested in spearheading an effort to create a Montana Freedom Caucus, which basically parallels the efforts that they have going on at the congressional level with their House Freedom Caucus there,” began Senator Manzella.

There are also 10 other states that have already got their state legislators on board with establishing a Freedom Caucus in their states.” Manzella was highly complimentary of the new Montana Freedom Caucus. Manzella said the Freedom Caucus is a Good Representation of State Government “I'm very excited about the members that we have in the state Freedom Caucus,” she said.

We're well distributed all across the state and we have some fantastic people representing all the different issuesWe have policy people as well as some great appropriations people, so I think we've got a really good representation of state government.” Manzella said she and other organizers closely examined the past voting records of potential Freedom Caucus members before approaching them to join the caucus. “I was able to kind of pinpoint through the voting records and went through my list of associates,” she said.

“We compared their voting records and reconciled that with their characters.
