Abstract:

"An inspiring and eye-opening memoir showing how Democrats can reconnect with rural and red state voters from Montana's three-term Democratic senator"--

Tester is the only United States senator who manages a full-time job outside of the Senate-- as a Montana farmer. His his commitment to accountability, his ability to stand up to Donald Trump, and his success in, time and again, winning red state voters back to the Democratic Party, have come to distinguish Tester in the Senate. Here he shares his early life, his rise in the Democratic party, his vision for helping rural America, and his strategies for reaching red state voters. His voice is vital to the public discourse as we seek to understand the issues that are important to rural and working-class America in not just the 2020 election but also for years to come.
