HELENA — Montana U.S. Sen. Jon Tester said Friday he’ll vote against Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, removing himself from the short list of undecided Democratic senators who are up for re-election in states won by President Donald Trump. Tester’s decision is sure to be used as campaign fodder by his Republican opponent, State Auditor Matt Rosendale, and by outside groups like the National Rifle Association, which previously launched an ad campaign against Tester for his last three Supreme Court confirmation votes.
