NEW: Daines Again Pockets Thousands in Campaign Cash from Right-to-Repair Opponents 
 
Helena, MT – Yesterday, Senator Steve Daines filed his latest campaign finance report, and unsurprisingly, he is still being bankrolled by his same-old big corporate backers. In particular, Daines pocketed a staggering $20,000 in campaign cash from opponents of right-to-repair – which allows farmers and consumers the ability to fix and update their own equipment – including donations from the agriculture equipment and big technology industries. 

This development comes just a few weeks after Daines played dumb to the Montana Farmers Union and claimed he “was not familiar” with right-to-repair and “would have his staff look into it.” The right-to-repair is vital for Montana farmers in keeping their operations running in an efficient manner and their input costs low. Throughout his time in Washington D.C., Daines has pocketed more than $70,000 in campaign cash from right-to-repair opponents, who stand to benefit from rules mandating farmers turn to them for repairs. 

“Time and time again, Daines has been looking out for his big corporate buddies, rather than fighting for hard-working Montana farmers,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “It’s crystal clear that Daines  fights for himself and the corporate interests who bankroll his campaign – Montanans simply can’t trust him.”
