Walker Announces Bid For U.S. House
Billings’ businessman and former state senator Ed Walker has announced his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives, MT-02.
Walker is the fourth generation of his family to call Montana home and he enters the race ready to fight for the Treasure State in Washington, D.C.
“This is such a serious time for our country, Joe Biden and the Democrats have brought America to the brink,” Walker said in a press release. “I am running because Washington needs a proven Montana conservative to bring conservative solutions to tackle the huge problems we face in America. Issues like our $33 trillion national debt, our wide-open borders which has put every American at risk, and America’s energy economy which has been paralyzed by burdensome regulations. America needs conservative solutions and leadership now more than ever because they work.”
Montana’s 2nd Congressional District is currently represented by Matt Rosendale (R).
“Montana’s 2nd Congressional District needs a conservative to step up and put together the organization necessary to run a successful campaign and keep this seat in conservative hands,” added Walker. “That is exactly what I am doing and why I have decided to announce my campaign for Congress today.”
Walker has a record of fighting for conservative solutions during his tenure in the Montana State Senate, including legislation requiring state agencies to run an impact analysis before they enact rules on small businesses. Further, Walker introduced bills to require zero-based budgeting and to get legislators off the public pension system. After exiting the Senate, he led the drive for term limits as the chairman of U.S. Term Limits for Montana.
Walker lives in Billings and has been married to his wife, Kathleen, for 30 years. They have five grown children and three grandchildren.
