FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

And while some have said that Jennifer Fielder, candidate for PSC District 3, would be a “breath of fresh air,” the truth is that adding Fielder to the mix would be more like pouring a tank of gasoline on a dumpster fire.
Fielder has long ranked among the most extreme members on the fringes of the Montana Republican Party. She has repeatedly defended and associated with radical militia members — even going so far as to host an event for the Bundy family here in Montana. She’s a fervent advocate for the transfer of federal lands, which could lead to their sale.
Fielder also participated in a panel hosted by an anti-Indian group, and brushed off subsequent outrage. She has been casual with rhetoric suggesting armed insurrection and civil war, and attended a conference where she rubbed elbows with an SPLC-designated extremist anti-LGBTQ author.
“Jennifer Fielder has long operated on the radical fringes of her own party — if elected to the PSC, we can only expect her to add to the embarrassing dysfunction that currently defines the body,” said MDP Communications Director Nathan Stein. “Montanans deserve far better.”
