Great Falls Tribune: Cooney, Tester Slam Gianforte For “Support[ing] This Reckless Trade War”
 
Tester: “He refused to lift a finger to stop Montana’s farmers and ranchers from being used as pawns in the President’s disastrous trade war.”
 
Helena, MT – This week, Lt. Gov. Mike Cooney released his “Growing Montana” plan to support rural communities and struggling farmers and ranchers throughout Montana. Standing with Cooney, Sen. Jon Tester slammed Greg Gianforte for supporting the federal government’s harmful international trade policy, despite the devastation that it’s wrought on Montana’s agricultural economy.

As reported by the Great Falls Tribune, Sen. Tester said, “Mr. Gianforte supported this reckless trade agenda. [Gianforte] refused to lift a finger to stop Montana’s farmers and ranchers from being used as pawns in the President’s disastrous trade war.”

“Greg Gianforte refuses to speak out against the federal government’s devastating trade war, which is crushing family farmers and ranchers throughout Montana,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel. “Greg Gianforte has spent his time in Congress skipping votes and leaving Montana’s ag economy out to dry. Montana can’t afford Gianforte as our next governor.”
