Montana Libertarian Party candidate Rick Breckenridge just threw his support behind Matt Rosendale. This is bad news for Jon Tester, who has consistently relied on third party candidates to win his previous Senate races due to his inability to ever break the 50 percent mark.
It won’t be any easier this cycle given Tester’s strident opposition to President Trump in a state Trump won by over 20 points. Tester has repeatedly opposed the President’s agenda, including on government shutdowns, Supreme Court nominees, repealing Obamacare, tax cuts, and his smear campaign against President Trump’s VA nominee Ronnie Jackson.
“Jon Tester just lost the ace up his sleeve that has enabled him to repeatedly stumble into the U.S. Senate. This is now a choice between a Democrat obstructionist in Jon Tester or Matt Rosendale, who will fight to advance the Trump agenda.” -SLF Spokesman Matt Gruda
