Daines Skips Senate Votes to Participate in Reckless Campaign Rally
Helena, MT – Yesterday, Senator Steve Daines once again skipped work to focus on his reelection campaign – choosing instead to participate in a large campaign rally alongside Vice President Mike Pence over fighting for Montanans’ needs in DC. Despite clear public health guidance warning against large gatherings amidst the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, the Daines campaign reportedly did not contact the Gallatin County health department to ensure the safety of all involved. While Daines himself promised precautionary measures, photos reveal nonexistent physical distancing and few attendees wearing masks.
Yet again, Daines is putting himself and his political career over the best interests of Montanans.
“Senator Daines ignored an ongoing public health crisis and put Montanans at risk to try and boost his struggling re-election campaign,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Daines proved once again that he’ll always put his political career and his DC party bosses first — not Montana families.”
