Senator Tester released the following statement after Senator John Walsh decided to end his campaign:

“I respect Senator Walsh's decision to step out of the race, I know it was a difficult one.  John has dedicated his life to serving the people of Montana and our country.  From his 33-year career of military service to his work in the U.S. Senate, John Walsh has courageously devoted himself to our state and our nation and we all owe him thanks for his service.”
