BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Montana Republican Congressman Matt Rosendale dropped his U.S. Senate bid on Thursday, less than a week after he got into the race only to see former President Donald Trump quickly endorse his opponent.

Rosendale, a hard-line conservative, said in a statement that with Trump’s backing of fellow Republican Tim Sheehy and a lack of resources, “the hill was just too steep.” Trump’s endorsement came just hours after . . .
