High Country News;11/12/2007, Vol. 39 Issue 21, p6
An interview with Dennis McDonald, a cattleman and leader of the Montana's Democratic Party, is presented. When asked about the factor that motivated him to get into politics, he refers to the period when he participated the presidential campaign for then Senator Robert F. Kennedy. He denotes that Kennedy's assassination in 1968 added such motivation. He believes that as a cattleman, he will have the chance to promote the beef products from grassroots producers in the market.
