Do Nothing Daines Continues His Summer Holiday Despite Failing to Pass Covid Relief

Helena, MT – As Montana’s critical needs from the federal government are going unmet – including funding for state and local governments, our schools, the Postal Service and an extension of emergency unemployment benefits, where is Senator Steve Daines? 

Daines is busy enjoying his month-long summer holiday despite failing to pass vital pandemic relief for Montana.

While Montanans are continuing to confront this crisis and the Postal Service lacks adequate resources to deliver critical mail including prescription drugs, Social Security benefits, and ballots without delays, Daines is sitting on his hands. Additionally, Daines has remained in lockstep with party leaders as the administration has put forward executive orders that could sabotage Medicare and Social Security. Instead, he is choosing to prioritize his sinking reelection campaign.  

“Hard-working Montanans would never quit before a job is done – and they expect their senator to do the same,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “In a time of unparalleled crisis, Senator Daines is putting himself first and leaving Montanans in the dust.”
