"With a record of putting his own ambitions ahead of Montana, Steve Daines is exactly what’s wrong with Washington. Daines has voted against seniors, women, jobs, and students – siding instead with the millionaire and corporate interests. Steve Daines voted to end Medicare as we know it while giving tax breaks to companies that send jobs to China. He supports Personhood, has protected big tax breaks for companies that set up factories overseas, and backs cuts for student loan funding. Daines even led the effort to shut down the government last fall which hurt Montanans across the state. Come November, Montanans will reject Steve Daines’ reckless and irresponsible political agenda and elect Senator John Walsh, a decorated combat veteran whose courageous service and deep Montana roots make him the best candidate to represent Montana values in Washington."
