Chairman Sessions Statement on Rehberg Announcement

February 5, 2011

National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX) today released the following statement regarding Congressman Denny Rehberg’s (R-MT) announcement that he will run for the U.S. Senate:

“In Congress, Denny Rehberg has brought his small business experience and Treasure State values to champion a conservative fiscal record and to fight for the interests of Montana residents. For 10 years, Denny has been a great friend to me and our colleagues in the House of Representatives, and his clear vision and dedicated service will be missed.

“Montana residents understand that smaller government frees America to prosperity, and I am confident that they will elect a new Republican Member of Congress who will continue Denny’s commitment for a balanced budget and government that respects individual liberty. I wish Denny, his wife Jan and their children all the best as they begin a new journey to serve Montana residents.
