Matt Rosendale has just barely been elected state insurance commissioner, and now he thinks he deserves to be a Montana senator. But if he makes it any further in this race, Montanans will soon realize that Rosendale doesn’t stand for anyone but himself.
Here in Montana, we help each other out. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Republican or a Democrat — if it’s below zero and your neighbor’s car won’t start, you give them a jump. But Rosendale hasn’t seemed to pick up on that yet in his scramble from political office to political office in Montana.
"Maryland Matt" has consistently thrown away all the values Montanans hold dear. We are all public lands owners, but Rosendale has tried to transfer them away from us. Instead of his campaign being fueled by grassroots Montanans, his campaign is being propped up by millionaires like Mitch McConnell, Steve Bannon and billionaires from Chicago. Rosendale even voted against protections for children who were victims of human trafficking in Montana — who does that?
Rosendale has shown us his true colors, and they don’t belong in Big Sky Country. This November, I’m voting for a true Montanan at the ballot box: U.S. Sen. Jon Tester.
