Trump Jr. hunting big game in Montana: Jon Tester, the senator who derailed his father's VA pick
Washington Examiner ^ | July 3, 2018

Posted on 07/04/2018 12:12:06 PM PDT by SMGFan

Donald Trump Jr., President Trump's eldest son, is on the hunt in the state of Montana, setting his focus on ensuring that Sen. Jon Tester, a Democrat who has served in the U.S. Senate for more than 11 years, doesn't get re-elected this year.

He has visited the Northwestern state to campaign for Republican candidates, including last month when he spoke at the Montana Republican Party's annual convention in Billings. There he appeared alongside Sen. Steve Daines, Rep. Greg Gianforte, and State Auditor Matt Rosendale, who is challenging Tester this November and recently won the GOP primary.

"I'm the son of a billionaire from New York City and I have much more of a Montana platform than the senator, the senior senator from this state. That doesn't make much sense," Trump Jr. said at the event, where he also panned Tester as being "all for illegal immigration, all for sanctuary cities" and for "writing and proposing legislation against the second amendment."

"Trump Jr. kept the hits against Tester coming with an op-ed published Tuesday in the Great Falls Tribune, one of the state's largest newspapers. Touting his father's electoral appeal in the state — he won Montana by 20 points in 2016 — the headline of Trump Jr.'s blared: "Jon Tester is no partner of President Trump "

Who is challenging Tester? It is not clear from the article.
He should go shooting and have the pictures. Another source of insanity for the Left.

Will this, at a minimum, make Tester approve the nominee?

I really doubt this cat has 9 lives as he barely won in 2012 with a paltry 49% of the vote. As strong as The Donald is currently in Montana Tester will be fortunate to get to 40%.

Just look at the killer advantages going into this battle: open borders, eliminate ice, jobs, land regulations, oil, gas, mining reforms, EPA reform, timber regs, tax cuts, big ranch inheritance tax reform......the list goes on and on and means that Tester is toast.

Montana, North Dakota, West Virginia, Missouri should not have Democrat Senators anymore.
Hope we pick them all up this time.

What’s holding him back? Time to get more conservatives from NY.

DJT Jr is a great guy with really sound policies, but I don’t think he has the charisma of Eric or Ivanka who I think are more likely to run for office.
