Sleazy Backroom Politics Won’t Fool Montanans

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, slammed the cheap political stunt to nominate Lt. Gov. John Walsh to fill Senator Max Baucus’ term in the U.S. Senate.

Tea Party Express’ Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “In an arrogant, yet typical move by Democratic Party elites, Governor Bullock has abandoned his constituents to kowtow to a slick Washington, D.C., concocted deal to keep liberals in control of the United States Senate. This is exactly the type of slimy D.C. politics that voters hate. Instead of doing what is right by appointing a placeholder, Governor Bullock plucked up the Party’s anointed, scandal-tinged liberal John Walsh to fill the spot. It’s clear that this is just a desperate attempt hang onto a Senate seat that they are going to lose.

“The foundation of our Republic is made up of fair elections,” Russo said. “Americans are tired of party bosses in D.C. trying to manipulate elections so they can maintain their power. Congressman Steve Daines has the respect and support of Montana voters and desparate trickery won’t change that. Governor Bullock and Leutienant Governor Walsh should be ashamed of themselves for trying to manipulate the system to keep big spending liberals in control in Washginton,” Russo concluded.
