I love it when a dirty tricks blow up in the perpetrators’ faces. There is a time to choose the Libertarian alternative. This is not one of them.
Tester campaign dirty trick backfires.
You have to wonder if Trump being president has some kind of trickle down effect on the goings on because WHEN was the LAST TIME any third party candidate did an R a favor instead of a D?
Rosendale is gonna beat Tester like a drum.
Does Montana have early voting?
If yes, I worry about the number of people who may have cast a vote for the Libertarian and now can’t change their vote to Rosendale.
Rosendale will win big. Trump won MT by 40 points in 2016 and is enormously popular there.
Wow. That took guts.
A Liberterian that gets it.
the only libertarian I have EVER heard of that had any qualms with being the sole reason that a liberal is being sent to high office.
I hope Rosendale beats Tester like a baby seal
. . . and an expert who spoke with the Falls Tribune said it was unlikely the decision would sway the results with hundreds of thousands of ballots already mailed in.
It will if its close and we need the votes on Election Day.
this libertarian candidate deserves a good Thank You!
Good point DP.
that was a quote from the story. just fyi
The dems are trying to siphon off Republican botes in Indiana by promoting the libertarian candidate for Senate in mailings targeted to registered Republicans.
Wonderful. Now we need the REPUBLICAN senate candidate to bow out in New Mexico thereby giving a chance for Gary Johnson a statewide winner from years ago.
Tester is a real scumbag.
