Daines Silent As Trump Tries to Undermine Election By Gutting Funding for the Postal Service 
Helena, MT – Today, President Trump announced his opposition to much-needed funding for the U.S. Postal Service so it’s more difficult for Americans to vote by mail in November – a brazen attempt to undermine the legitimacy of the upcoming election. 

Despite this clear attempt from President Trump to undermine Americans’ access to the ballot box during a pandemic, Senator Steve Daines has remained silent. 

This continues Daines’ pattern of repeatedly putting party loyalty above all else. During his time in the Senate, Daines has voted in line with Mitch McConnell and party leadership nearly 95% of the time. When President Trump tear-gassed peaceful protesters demanding an end to police brutality against Black Americans, Daines said he was “thankful for the President’s leadership” and when the President later sent in federal police to cities without their consent, Daines skirted questions

“Steve Daines’ complete refusal to speak out against even the most egregious actions from President Trump show he’s nothing but a coward who will do anything to get reelected,”  said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Time and time again, Daines has made clear he prefers kowtowing to party leaders than doing what’s right. That’s not the Montana way.”
