Helena IR: Rehberg in the thick of budget fray

On October 9, 2012 the Helena Independent Record reported:

As he oversees U.S. House Republicans’ draft of the federal government’s 2012 health and education budgets, Montana Rep. Denny Rehberg finds himself hip-deep in the Washington, D.C., political fray, defending a $153 billion plan that’s drawing fire from all sides. The proposal — unveiled last week — would torpedo virtually all funding for the Obama Administration’s health reform law, including additional money for community health clinics across Montana; ax federal money for two dozen family planning clinics in the state; reduce funds for Pell grants that help low-income students pay college tuition; and scale back money for home-heating assistance. Those and other cutbacks have prompted Democrats to say the “Rehberg budget” unduly targets women, families, students and workers.

AP:Rehberg town hall meetings far more infrequent

On October 8, 2011 The Associated Press reported:

It has been months since Rep. Denny Rehberg, a champion of the town hall meeting, has held one of the wide-open events - but the congressman is not abandoning the platform. Rehberg told The Associated Press in a recent interview that he has been forced to hold other types of events in recent months when back in Montana due to a new leadership post requiring he build part of a proposed federal budget, the demands of his developing campaign against U.S. Jon Tester and other factors. The change comes as many in Congress figure out the freewheeling town halls aren't the best way to gather voter support - and as Rehberg launches into the biggest campaign of his career in one of the most-watched Senate races in the nation.

USA Today: On immigration issues, Mitt Romney's record is thin

On October 5, 2011, USA Today reported:

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has slammed Texas Gov.Rick Perry as soft on immigration while touting his own conservative positions on the issue. But beyond a handful of decisions, including one issued the month before he left office and never fully implemented, Romney's experience with immigration issues in his home state is sparse, according to immigration experts in Massachusetts. As governor, Romney moved from being positive on immigration to negative, particularly as it became apparent he was going to run for president, says Westy Egmont, co-chairman of the Governor's Advisory Council for Refugees and Immigrants. Egmont held the same position during Romney's term as governor from 2003 to 2007.

Washington Post: Rick Perry and race: Haley Barbour's example

As The Post reported Monday, Perry has a complicated record on matters of race.He appointed the first African American to the state Supreme Court. And then made him chief justice. Perry’s pick for the Texas A&M Board of Regents became his alma mater’s first black chairman. But the “Niggerhead” controversy is one in a series of troubling revelations about the long-serving Lone Star governor. [...] And the folks over at American Bridge 21st Century, a progressive research group that focuses on the words and deeds of Republicans, brought to my attention a 2007 Associated Press story about a celebration of Perry’s second full term as governor that featured musician Ted Nugent “wearing a cutoff T-shirt emblazoned with the Confederate flag and shouting offensive remarks about non-English speakers.. . .”

Billings Gazette: City responds to Rehberg Ranch wildfire lawsuit

On October 5, 2011 the Billings Gazette reported:

 With settlement negotiations stalled, an attorney for the city of Billings has filed a formal response denying claims by Rehberg Ranch Estates alleging firefighters failed to properly contain a 2008 wildfire. The unusual legal move in a lawsuit that has sat dormant in Yellowstone County District Court for more than a year is intended to "move the litigation forward," said Billings attorney Michele Braukmann, who is representing the city. The lawsuit, filed by Rep. Denny Rehberg and his wife, Jan, against the city on July 2, 2010, alleges that city firefighters breached their duty to protect the subdivision the Rehbergs own during the wildfire. The fire broke out on July 2, 2008, and was quickly contained, but it flared again two days later and forced the evacuation of about 40 homes. The Rehbergs allege that the firefighters left the property too quickly and the fire damaged land that they planned to develop.
