Matthew Martin Rosendale Sr. (born July 7, 1960)[1] is an American politician and businessman from the state of Montana. A Republican, he is the U.S. representative for Montana's at-large congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives, elected in 2020.

Prior to taking office as a congressman, Rosendale served as the Montana State Auditor and Commissioner of Securities and Insurance. He was also a member of the Montana Legislature from 2011 to 2017, serving in both houses.

Early life and career

Rosendale was born and raised in Maryland.[2] He spent his career working in real estate, real estate development and land management.[3] He grew his family real estate business from a single, five agent office into a full-service firm with 65 agents and four offices.[4]

Rosendale and his wife moved their family to Glendive, Montana, in 2002,[5] where they raised their children. He was twice elected chairman of the Glendive Agri-Trade Expo committee,[6] a local group that puts on an agriculture exposition showcasing agri-business in eastern Montana.[7] Rosendale also served as head of his local Catholic parish council.[6]

Montana State Legislature

Rosendale says his friends and neighbors in Glendive urged him to run for the state legislature to reduce spending and regulations, defend their gun and property rights, and protect the sanctity of life.[8][9]

He served for one two-year term in the Montana House of Representatives and one four-year term in the Montana Senate,[10] during which he served as Senate Majority Leader.[11]

2010 Montana House of Representatives election

Rosendale announced he would run for the Montana House of Representatives[12] to represent House District 38, which covers Wibaux and part of Dawson county. Also seeking the Republican nomination were Edward Hilbert and Alan Doane, the latter of which ended up succeeding Rosendale in the Montana House. Rosendale prevailed, receiving 48.4% of the vote, with Doane receiving 41.3% and Hilbert receiving 10.4%.[13]

Rosendale went on to defeat a Democratic incumbent State Representative Dennis Getz in the general election, receiving 52.7% of the vote to Getz's 47.3%.[14]

2011 state legislative session

During the 2011 legislative session, Rosendale served on several committees including the Business and Labor Committee, the Transportation Committee, and the Local Government Committee.[15]

2012 Montana Senate election

In 2012, with State Senator Donald Steinbeisser's being ineligible to run for reelection due to term limits,[16] Rosendale announced he would run for the Montana Senate to represent Senate District 19, a heavily Republican district in eastern Montana.[17]

After running unopposed in the Republican primary,[18] Rosendale defeated Democrat Fred Lake in the general election, receiving 67.6% of the vote to Lake's 32.4%.[19]

2013 Senate session

During the 2013 legislative session, Rosendale served as Vice Chair of the Natural Resources and Transportation Committee. He also served on the Finance and Claims Committee, the Highways and Transportation Committee and the Natural Resources Committee.[15] During this legislative session, Rosendale was the primary sponsor of a resolution urging Congress to submit a balanced budget amendment to states.[20] He also was the primary sponsor of a bill which became law to prevent law enforcement from using drones for surveillance purposes.[21]

Based on Rosendale's voting record in the 2013 legislative session, he earned a 100% on the Montana Family Foundation's scorecard[22] and was also named a "Champion of Business" by the Montana Chamber of Commerce.[23]

2015 Senate session and Majority Leader tenure

Due to state redistricting in 2014, Rosendale represented Senate District 18 for the remainder of his tenure, starting in 2015.[24] At the beginning of the 2015 legislative session, Rosendale's colleagues in the State Senate, elected him to serve as the Senate Majority Leader.[11] He also served as the Chair of the Rules Committee and as a member of the Finance and Claims Committee and Natural Resources and Transportation Committee.[15] Rosendale was the primary sponsor of a bill to authorize direct primary care provider plans which passed both houses of the legislature before being vetoed by Democratic Governor Steve Bullock.[25]

Rosendale's voting record in the 2015 session earned him perfect 100% scores on several organizations' scorecards including the Montana Family Foundation.[26] He was the recipient of the American Conservative Union's "Award for Conservative Excellence"[27] and was again named a "Champion of Business" by the Montana Chamber of Commerce.[28]

Montana State Auditor

Elections

2016

With State Auditor Monica Lindeen ineligible to run for re-election due to term limits,[29] Rosendale decided to run for the open State Auditor position.[30]

Rosendale ran unopposed in the Republican primary.[31] In the general election, Rosendale faced Jesse Laslovich,[32] who was Chief Legal Counsel to State Auditor Monica Lindeen and was widely considered to be one of Montana's rising political stars.[33]

Despite being outspent 4:1,[34] Rosendale defeated Democrat Jesse Laslovich receiving 53.6% of the vote to Laslovich's 46.4%.[35] At the time, this was the most expensive State Auditor's race in Montana state history.

2018 U.S. Senate election

Main article: 2018 United States Senate election in Montana

In 2017, Rosendale announced he would seek the Republican nomination to challenge two-term incumbent Democratic Senator Jon Tester.[36]

In a competitive four-way primary, Rosendale faced District Judge Russell Fagg, State Senator Al Olszewski, and combat veteran Troy Downing.[12] Rosendale won the Republican primary with 33.8% of the vote, to Fagg's 28.3%, Downing's 19.1% and Olszewski's 18.7%.[37]

After the primary, Rosendale was endorsed by President Donald Trump[38] and Vice President Mike Pence.[39] Trump visited the state to campaign for Rosendale four times,[40] with Pence visiting three times.[41]

Polls showed the race in a statistical tie going into election day,[42] in what was the most expensive election in Montana history, with more than $70 million spent between the two sides.[43] Tester's campaign had a huge cash advantage, raising and spending $21 million to Rosendale's $6 million.[44]

In the general election, Tester won 50.3% of the vote to Rosendale's 46.8%, with Libertarian candidate Rick Breckenridge taking 2.9%.[45]

Tenure

As State Auditor, Rosendale approved direct primary care[25] and Medi-Share.[46]

He has refused to accept a pay raise every single year.[47]

As State Auditor, Rosendale is also one of five members of the Montana State Land Board, which oversees the 5.2 million acres in the state trust land.[48] As a member of the Montana State Land Board, Rosendale voted to expand access to over 45,000 acres (18,000 ha) of public land.[49]

In 2017, Rosendale proposed legislation which would create a reinsurance program so that individuals with pre-existing conditions could access affordable health coverage. This legislation passed both houses of the legislature before being vetoed by Governor Steve Bullock.[50] Rosendale condemned Governor Bullock's veto stating, "the governor has sacrificed good, bipartisan policy in favor of bad, partisan politics."[51]

Rosendale then worked with a bipartisan group of Montana officials to create a reinsurance program and were granted a waiver to do so by the federal government.[52] The program is currently operational.[53]

In 2019, Rosendale proposed legislation targeting pharmacy benefits managers and a practice known as spread pricing.[54] The legislation passed both houses of the legislature[55] before being vetoed by Governor Steve Bullock.[56] Rosendale again condemned Governor Bullock saying his veto "is a gift to the pharmaceutical and insurance industries and it's a slap in the face to consumers."[57]
