“He isn’t good at promoting himself back here in Montana,” Denowh said. “He has a modesty problem and has had [difficulty] getting the recognition he deserves.
“We had some tough legislative races last time but Burns has long coattails in this state; it’s going to be a good year for Republicans with him leading the ticket,” he predicted.
