By Beacon Staff

BILLINGS – Republican Denny Rehberg is running for a fifth term as Montana’s sole representative in the U.S. House.

The congressman announced his re-election bid Tuesday morning at an event in Billings.

Rehberg emphasized his opposition to government-run health care and his support for continued development of fossil fuels. He also urged voters not to get swept up in Democratic calls for change, saying “change isn’t always a good thing.”

Helena attorney Jim Hunt is Rehberg’s only announced Democratic challenger.

Rehberg, 52, served as lieutenant governor under former governors Stan Stephens and Marc Racicot. Elected to the House in 2000, he is a member of the appropriations committee.
