Bob Kelleher on Principles & Values

Republican challenger


Admits past failings to prevent Baucus from attacking

Saying he's concerned Democratic Sen. Max Baucus may use personal smears in the campaign, as he has in past campaigns, Republican candidate Bob Kelleher laid out his life's faults Wednesday. Kelleher said he'd beat Baucus to the punch and lay bare his personal shortcomings:

Ran for office in past as Green and as Democrat

Patty Lovaas filed a Declaration of Candidacy to be on the November ballot in Montana as an independent candidate for Senate. She had also run in this year's Republican primary for the same office [losing to Bob Kelleher].

Lovaas is running as an independent, because, she says, the man who won the Republican primary for U.S. Senate this year is not a bona fide Republican. He is Bob Kelleher, who was the Green Party nominee for Governor in 2004 [and has run for public office as a Democrat].

Nominated but barred from speaking at state GOP convention

Denied a chance to speak at the state Republican convention, the party's U.S. Senate nominee Bob Kelleher fielded questions Friday from reporters and a Ron Paul supporter in an otherwise empty side room.

State Republican Chairman Erik Iverson decided not to allow Kelleher to speak during one of the meals at the convention, as other statewide candidates were allowed to do. Iverson said it appeared that the only plank of the Republican platform Kelleher agrees with was opposition to abortion.
