With mail-ballots for the upcoming June 2 primary election hitting mailboxes this Friday, candidates are taking advantage of online forums to get their message out to voters. This weekend, the Montana Farmers Union, Northern Plains Resource Council, Montana Cattlemen Association and the United States Cattlemen Association, hosted candidates for Montana’s lone U.S. House seat in a virtual debate. It focused on agriculture and rural issues.

MTPR's Corin Cates-Carney spoke with Yellowstone Public Radio's Nicky Ouellet about how the candidates tried to stand out from the pack.
