While Montana legislators delivered historic tax relief and stronger laws to go after fentanyl dealers, liberal Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) is responsible for our wide open border that is bringing the drug epidemic to Montana.

Don "K", the Chairman of the Montana Republican Party, hammered Tester during a recent appearance on our statewide radio talk show. Tester is up for re-election in 2024.

Don K: Over 7 million illegal immigrants have crossed the border under the Biden-Tester agenda...we have a record amount of fentanyl that has been seized in Montana the first half of the year... The Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force, has seized over 186,000 doses of fentanyl. That's a 52% increase over the entire amount last year and a 373% increase overall of 2021. And I know you know fentanyl related deaths are also on the rise across the state- 48 deaths already this year.

Don K also went after Monica Tranel. She lost against Congressman Ryan Zinke (R-MT01) in the last election, and is going to try to run against him again in 2024. I noted how Tranel attacked Zinke for standing up for the coal workers in Colstrip and for wanting to delist the grizzlies from the Endangered Species Act.

Don K: She's (Tranel) really way too far extreme for Montana. We figured that out last election when she lost. We figured it out, quite frankly, in every election that she's- I think she ran four times and thankfully has not won.
