Congressional Primary Debates – Live on KSEN-am & K96-fm
Democratic and Republican candidates for Congress will meet in a series of four debates, beginning this Thursday evening. KSEN-am and KZIN-fm (K96) will carry all four of the one-hour debates, which are co-sponsored by Montana Farmers Union, U.S. Cattlemen's Association, Montana Cattlemen's Association, and the Northern Plains Resource Council. All debates are open to the public, and will be broadcast via the Northern Ag Network.
Following the 2020 U.S. Census, Montana was awarded a second Congressional seat. The final map approved last November splits our north central Montana coverage area, with Glacier County and part of Pondera County in District 1, and eastern Pondera, Toole, Liberty, and Teton counties in District 2.
