Schweitzer Showing No Affection for Congress

February 24, 2012

If term-limited Montana Democratic Gov. Brian Schweitzer is giving a 2014 Senate run some consideration, he sure isn't showing it by expressing any love for the legislative branch.

"I think by my comments, you've probably gleaned that I don't think a great deal of the workings of Congress," Schweitzer said in a brief interview on Friday after a Democratic Governors Association panel discussion on the economy.

Governors from across the country are in Washington this weekend for the National Governors Association's Winter Meeting.

"I'm a doer not a talker, and the United States Senate is for talkers," he said.

Democratic Sen. Max Baucus is up for reelection in 2014 and there is speculation that Schweitzer could challenge him. When asked if Baucus's reelection calculus affects his own plans, he responded simply, "no, not at all."
