Daines Heading to DC

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Republican Steve Daines says he is heading to Washington, D.C., with the aim of making the federal government do more with less now that he’s won Montana’s sole U.S. House seat.

Daines said Wednesday that people in Montana and across the nation are looking for results out of a government that’s been mired in gridlock. He joins a divided Congress with Republicans controlling the House and Democrats the Senate.

The Bozeman businessman captured 53 percent of the vote, versus 47 percent for Democrat Kim Gillan.

Gillan, a state senator from Billings, congratulated Daines Wednesday morning and thanked her supporters. She says her immediate plans are to spend time with her family and return to her job in workforce training at Montana State University, Billings.
