FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tuesday, September 8, 2020
Lt. Gov. Mike Cooney forcefully condemned the comments as “abhorrent” and “disturbing,” saying, “service members put their lives in harm’s way each and every day to keep us safe and defend our freedom – they deserve nothing but our utmost respect and support.” Cooney is also set today to release his plan to make sure our nation’s heroes get the care and benefits they have earned.
Even after Cooney’s campaign called upon Gianforte to clarify whether or not he stands by the President’s egregious comments, Gianforte has refused.
“Speaking up for Montana’s veterans and military families shouldn’t be a tough call for No Show Greg,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel. “Still, Greg Gianforte’s silence speaks volumes. Montana deserves a governor who will always speak up for our brave women and men in uniform, not stand idly by while their service is smeared.”
