Max Baucus has purchased $25,000 of radio ads that will air in the next weeks as Tax Day approaches, highlighting his role in the federal payroll tax cut, the Billings Gazette reported. Pundits are saying that this is the beginning of his re-election bid, and that he must start early to recover from his healthcare hangover.
Baucus has selected an interesting person to vouch for him in the radio ads. It is Dean Folkvord, owner of the Wheat Montana company. In the last decade or so, Folkvord has been a major supporter of the Right Wing, having made financial contributions to the Montana Republican Party, Bob Brown (2004), Roy Brown (2008), Todd Reier (2002), Scott Sales (2006), Art Whittich (2008), Pat Davison (2004), Cindy Younkin (2004), Duane Grimes (2004 and 2008), Roy Brown and Steve Daines (2008), Tim Fox (2008), and Rick Hill and Jon Sonju (2012).
