Dear Friends,

With a 1% negative rating among Democratic primary voters, Democratic US Senate Candidate Jon Tester is up 18 points since January and 6 points since early May against his primary opponent, Montana State Auditor John Morrison.

The really stellar one is Jon Tester.

And here's a piece from Jon Tester on the ways that alternative energy can help family farmers stay on the land while helping America achieve energy independence.
