In this episode (130) of Leupold's Hunt Talk Radio, Randy shares a mic with two statewide primary election candidates in his home state of Montana. We all have felt at some time that we voted for the lesser of two bad choices. This podcast is focused on how you can engage in the Primary Election to hopefully improve the candidates you get to choose from. Tim Fox and Jon Knokey are running on a strong public land and conservation platform. Yet, if they lose the primary, their outdoor policies will not move forward.
