Jack Ballard Ends U.S. Congressional Campaign


Red Lodge, MT – Jack Ballard, candidate for the Second Congressional District covering eastern Montana, issued the following statement on Feb. 24:

“I’m ending my campaign for Montana’s Second Congressional District. To be bluntly honest, we’ve failed to raise the financial resources necessary to realistically keep paying campaign staff and fund travel, advertising, materials and other basic expenses through the primary.”

“I want to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to Montanans across the state who have supported my campaign, from Broadus to Libby, and from Glasgow to Dillon. I had many strong supporters – Democrats, Republicans and independents - who believe in the message that Montana needs a representative in Congress who looks out for workers, farmers and ranchers, our priceless public landscape and the infrastructure needs of local communities.”

“It was an honor to get out to places throughout the eastern district and meet Montanans. I visited not only the bigger population centers, but also rural communities like Sidney, Forsyth, Bridger and Havre. I met with high school students, laborers, ranchers, retirees…folks from all walks of life, all wonderful people.”

“I will continue, through my writing and actions, to influence politics in a direction that best serves the people of Montana.”
