U.S. Sen. Jon Tester announced Wednesday his endorsement of John Walsh for the Senate seat being vacated by Max Baucus.
Tester's endorsement was released just hours before U.S. Rep. Steve Daines, a Republican, is expected to announce his entry into the Senate race.
Daines is held a noontime event in Bozeman to announce his candidacy.
"John Walsh is the right choice," Tester, a Democrat, said in a press release.
"Too many politicians have forgotten why they're in Congress," Tester said. "Too many put their political agenda ahead of responsible governing. And Montanans pay the price."
