Endorsements

"The biggest thing we lost in the last election wasn’t the White House – it was our dignity. The only way to regain it is by electing people who embody it. Kathleen Williams is walking talking dignity. She has proven it during her legislative service and her thoughtful and inclusive approach to advocacy. When I envision her being the face of Montana in the US Congress I know I’ll be out knocking on doors one more time." --- Dorothy Bradley
