The faux outrage over Troy Downing's latest ad calling out U.S. Sen. Jon Tester for being a phony is laughable.
Jon Tester struts around Montana pretending to be one of us; yet make no mistake, he has become a swamp creature who does whatever Chuck Schumer tells him to. He votes against Montanans and President Trump every chance he gets.
Tester voted for the Iran nuclear deal, voted against the tax cuts, championed pro-abortion causes, voted to protect illegal immigrants and was the deciding vote for Obamacare. Those are not Montana values. Just because Tester was born here and acts like a farmer or trumpet player on the weekends, doesn't mean he represents us.
As a non-rich veteran of the U.S. Navy and a Montanan, it is clear that Dan Brooks is a shill for Democrats and has the same "values" as Jon Tester. Finally, we have a candidate in Troy Downing who is calling Tester on his B.S. and isn't afraid to go after him for it. We need someone who has been in the fight across enemy lines and won't fold to special interests in D.C.
I am proud to stand with Troy Downing for U.S. Senate and I encourage you to as well.
