Former Montana Lt. Gov. John Bohlinger (D) announced his Senate campaign this week by comparing House Republicans to the Taliban.
"We need to challenge the Tea Party representatives who, like the Taliban, shut our country down," Bohlinger told reporters, according to the Billings Gazette, comparing the shutdown to the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Rep. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) officially announced his Senate campaign on Wednesday.
