Hill and Blaine County Democrats gave their all to oust House District 33 Representative Wendy Warburton this last election saying she was an “ineffective” Representative and bemoaned the fact that she was running on a pro-life pro-property rights platform. Not only did she surprise them by absolutely rolling over her opponent but now she has been elected to a leadership position in the Republican caucus yesterday.
The Montana Watchdog reports that Mike Milburn of Cascade was elected Speaker of the House and Representative Wendy Warburton from our own House District 33 was elected as one of the Majority Whips. Milburn was quoted as saying
“We’ve got to stand up to an overreaching federal government,” Milburn told fellow House Republicans. “I’m talking about ObamaCare, wolves, national monuments and our environmental regulations"The rest of the leaders elected by their respective party caucuses can be found on the Montana Republican Legislative Campaign Committee website.
What a great honor for our home town conservative gal and what a boon for those of us fortunate to live on the Hi-line. Congratulations Wendy! We look forward to another term of your outstanding service to our area.
Poor Professor Bill must be livid upon hearing that all his efforts to bash Warburton’s fine voting record not only didn’t influence any local voters but also didn’t keep her from this honored spot of leadership
