You could feel the excitement. You could feel the cheering. As Mike Dennison detailed the millionaire after millionaire running for office this Fall, you could just imagine how excited the success-bashing Leftists were, sitting in their living rooms as they watched his report on the Montana Television Network.

And then, you can imagine how the air went out of the room when Dennison reported that, yes, Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) is technically a multi-millionaire too.

That makes it even more hilarious that the multi-millionaire Jon Tester was busted flying first class on a recent flight from Salt Lake to Bozeman, as The Lone Peak Lookout reports in this profile piece of Republican US Senate candidate Troy Downing:

As it happened, said Downing, he spotted Tester in first class and stopped for a moment to chat.

“I saw him sitting there and I made eye contact and said ‘How’s everything going?’,” recalled Downing, who soon carried on to his seat further back in the plane.

By the way- thanks for the shout out from The Lone Peak Lookout for our new show, "Montana Talks."

In Feb. alone, Downing has helped raise money for veterans with comedian Rob Riggle, he sat for an interview with Billings conservative talk radio host Aaron Flint, then he stumped in the Northeastern Montana community of Glasgow and attended the Montana GOP Winter Kickoff at the Radisson Colonial Hotel in Helena.
