New ad touts farmer’s record of doing ‘what’s best for Montana, always’

Tester eliminated burdensome EPA regulations, supports Keystone Pipeline

BILLINGS, Mont.—The U.S. Senate campaign of Jon Tester today launched a compelling new TV ad highlighting the Montana farmer’s record of doing “what’s best for Montana, always.”

The 30-second spot, now airing statewide, showcases how Tester successfully gave Montana control of its own grey wolf population and blocked burdensome EPA regulations on Montana agriculture.

The ad also highlights Tester’s support for the Keystone XL pipeline, his opposition to Wall Street bailouts and his vote for a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced federal budget.

The new ad explains why big corporations and out-of-state special interest groups, like Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS, have spent more than $5 million on attack ads on behalf of Congressman Dennis Rehberg.

Tester begins the ad saying, “Those out of state Super PACS don’t know anything about me or Montana.”

“Out-of-state special interest groups have poured $5 million into Montana in support of Congressman Dennis Rehberg’s because his agenda is their agenda, and they can always count on him to protect their special interests–even if it means shipping jobs overseas,” said Montanans for Tester spokeswoman Alexandra Fetissoff. “Jon Tester only does what’s best for Montana, and his agenda is doing what’s right for Montana.”

JON TESTER: Those out of state Super PACS don’t know anything about me or Montana. Let’s take them on a little tour of our state.

I took on the Obama administration to put Montana back in charge of wolves. I voted to build the Keystone Pipeline. I voted for a balanced budget amendment. I opposed all those Wall Street bailouts. And got rid of those ridiculous EPA farm dust regulations.  Look across our state. I do what’s best for Montana, always.

I’m Jon Tester and I approve this message.
