Tester meets with Stevensville students

Senator answers wide-ranging questions from seven teens

(U.S. SENATE) – Senator Jon Tester this week sat down with seven Stevensville High School students to answer questions and welcome them to the nation’s capital.

In Tester’s Washington, D.C. office, the high school students were eager to hear about everything from Tester’s reasons for running for office to his favorite brand of farming equipment. They also had questions about pending immigration legislation.

“Some of the toughest and most direct questions I get come from Montana students,” Tester said afterward. “These kids don’t pull punches, and that’s one of the many reasons I look forward to sitting down with them every chance I get.”

The Stevensville High School Yellow Jackets came to the nation’s capital to sightsee and learn more about American government.

Tester, a former music teacher, meets with students from the Treasure State regularly in Montana and Washington.
