Attorney General Fox Files For Re-Election; No Opponents Yet

Republican made his bid for another term official on Tuesday

By Justin Franz

BILLINGS — Montana Attorney General Tim Fox has filed for re-election but so far faces no opponents in the primary or general election.

The Republican made his bid for another term official on Tuesday, submitting his candidate filing with the Secretary of State.

Fox told The Associated Press that if re-elected he will push for more resources to fight drug trafficking and put a greater focus on consumer fraud perpetrated against the elderly.

He also will continue opposing attempts by the federal government to infringe on state affairs. That includes proposed carbon dioxide emission reductions to counter climate change.

Fox says he’s raised almost $200,000 to date for his upcoming campaign, after spending about $370,000 during the 2012 election.

Campaign finance reports show he had $122,000 in cash at the end of 2015.
