Jon Tester

Tester Takes a Torpedo Below the Water Line

David Catron, The American Spectator

The Montana Libertarian Party usually nominates a spoiler who siphons enough votes from Jon Tester’s GOP challengers that he wins by the skin of his teeth. Soon we’ll be hearing more about Tester the “vote hunter,” as well as the endorsement of Rosendale by Breckenridge. The President will be holding a Saturday rally in Bozeman specifically to campaign on Matt Rosendale’s behalf. There can be little doubt that Trump will get a lot of mileage out of both of Tester’s embarrassments.

Montana Libertarian Rick Breckenridge Drops Out: Endorses GOP’s Matt Rosendale For U.S. Senate

Libertarian Rick Breckenridge withdrew from Montana’s U.S. Senate race on Wednesday and threw his support behind GOP candidate Matt Rosendale. We urge our Libertarian friends in Montana who have not yet voted to join Rick Breckenridge in supporting Republican Matt Rosendale for United States Senate.

Jon Tester is no partner of President Trump

Donald Trump Jr., USA Today

Jon Tester is no partner of President Trump. If we want to keep Montana strong and growing, we need to elect people who will support the President’s agenda — such as Senate candidate Matt Rosendale. True economic growth comes from within, not under the regulatory heel of Washington. It’s time we send Jon Tester back home and elect someone who will serve as a genuine partner of my father and his remarkable economic growth agenda.

Trump's assault on Jon Tester gives GOP room to run in Montana

Al Weaver, Washington Examiner

Republicans believe President Trump's public attacks against Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., is giving them a new opening against a Democratic incumbent, in a year when every Senate seat is important. The GOP is ready and willing to let Trump lead the way for them in Montana. According to a March survey, 50 percent of Montanans support the president compare to 46 who disapprove. Top Republicans believe the president has the ability to do to the incumbent Democrat what he did to many on his way to the presidency.

Navy rear admiral vs. Tester

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Mr. Tester supposedly heard completely unsubstantiated accusations that the doctor was a drunken partyer who once wrecked a Secret Service vehicle after a party. (Funny, I don’t remember the Montana farmer sliming his former colleague, Sen. Ted Kennedy.) Before confirming one word of the crazy allegations, Mr. Tester went directly to the media and aired it all. “Candy Man,” he called the rear admiral. And, in a flash, another political opponent annihilated. Now, Mr. Tester is the giant, pasty face of term limits. He is the embodiment of why people hate Washington politicians.
