New Ad Holds Senator Daines Accountable for Misleading Montanans on His Record

Helena, MT – Today, the Montana Democratic Party is releasing a new ad holding Senator Steve Daines accountable for misleading Monanans about his record on China. The ad highlights how the “China Cheerleader” is now trying to talk tough facing a rough re-election and taking advice from Republicans in Washington.

Senator Daines has spent years visiting China on the taxpayer dime, actively courting Chinese Communist Party officials, earning himself the title of “China’s ambassador in Congress.” His recent attempt to distance himself from the country he’s worked closely with follows guidance from Republican strategists in Washington, who advised vulnerable GOP incumbents to “attack China.”

This ad, backed by a five-figure buy, will target Montanans on multiple digital platforms including Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. 

“Steve Daines is trying to pull a fast one by rewriting his record on China, but Montanans won’t be fooled,” said MDP Executive Director Sandi Luckey. “The facts are clear — Daines has been aChina Cheerleader’ for years, and this cynical pivot is nothing more than a pathetic attempt to distract from his efforts to secure massive bailouts for his corporate backers over working Montana families who are hurting in the middle of this public health crisis.”
