First District Democrat Chintan Desai Talks GOP Tax Cuts, Net Neutrality

Helena Democrat Chintan Desai said it wasn’t that long ago that First District voters overwhelmingly supported Democrats over Republicans and he’s hoping that his candidacy can return the district to its roots.

“Many of the older voters there have actually changed parties in their lifetime, so I see an opportunity there. I see an opportunity to connect with voters on the issues that really matter to them,” said Desai, a guest on this week’s edition of Talk Business & Politics.

Desai faces a Democratic primary challenge with Richard Butler for the chance to square off against incumbent U.S. Rep. Rick Crawford, R-Jonesboro, who won the seat as a Republican for the first time since Reconstruction in 2010.    MORE
