Candidate’s additional comments The Constitution of the United State and the Montana Constitution where not written to impose laws on personal life styles. An individuals life style in regards to sexuality and abortion are between that person and their maker. Law makers should have no say. My personal believes may differ from my opinion on this questionnaire, but I’m not looking to impose my personal believes on anyone, but rather uphold the Constitutions of our country and state for all people.
