Daines for agriculture
Montana isn’t like other states in regards to bustling cities and towns. We are a state largely made up of rural communities filled with hardworking farmers and ranchers. That’s why it’s so important to have someone representing us in Congress that understands our values, needs and lifestyle.
Steve Daines has long, deep roots in Montana and has fought for farmers and ranchers since day one. He knows what it takes for rural Montana to thrive. That’s why recently Senator Daines has fought to prioritize beef born in Montana by joining a bipartisan resolution to mandate Country of Origin Labeling (COOL).
During the heart of the coronavirus outbreak, U.S. customs and border protection sought to close ports of entry into Montana. The coronavirus has already taken a significant toll on Montana agriculture and we could not afford to have these ports closed. That’s why Senator Daines fought and succeeded in keeping these ports open.
The bottom line is, Senator Daines has always had Montanan’s best interest in mind and stood with us every step of the way. That’s why come November, I will be voting Steve Daines for Senate and encourage all my fellow farmers and ranchers to do as well.
