Justin Barasky, National Press Secretary at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, issued the following statement on Steve Daines and the US Senate race in Montana:
"Steve Daines is a Washington insider who has always put himself ahead of his constituents. Daines irresponsibly led the effort to shut down the government and caused his constituents a great deal of pain simply to score political points for himself. Steve Daines is exactly what’s wrong with Washington. He works against Montana seniors, voting to cut Medicare benefits; against Montana kids, cutting funding for student loans, and against Montana jobs, protecting big tax breaks for companies that set up factories overseas. Montanans will reject Steve Daines’ reckless and irresponsible political agenda and support a hero like John Walsh, whose courageous service and deep Montana roots make him the best candidate to represent Montana values in the US Senate.
