The first black man to win election as mayor of a city in Montana and a first-time candidate who deployed to the Middle East on top secret missions during the global war on terror are both preparing to announce challenges to Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) next year.

Wilmot Collins, 55, a Liberian immigrant who has served as mayor of Helena since 2017, filed papers with the Federal Election Commission on Monday to open a campaign account. In a video posted to his Twitter feed, Collins hinted at his plans ahead of a Monday announcement.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Lobbyists are running the show in Washington, and they are leaving Montana families behind. It is left with us to fix it,” Collins said. “I may not look nor sound like the regular politicians, but I’m a hard worker and I get things done.”
