Wilmot Collins campaign to be Montana’s next Senator just called out the hypocrisy of Rosendale and Daines for their votes against the Southwest Montana Veterans Home. Daines even had the audacity to attend the groundbreaking of the home in Butte yesterday, disgusting.
This is leadership. @CollinsWilmot calls out the hypocrisy of @SteveDaines who voted against the Montana Vets Homes but then shows up for a photo-op. #mtpol #DishonestDaines pic.twitter.com/YpnwJUhG8r

That is disgusting hypocrisy that only a politician that has gone full D.C. like Daines could pull off.
Here is the email from Wilmot Collins campaign for Senate:
When it comes to our veterans, Steve Daines’ hypocrisy is enough to make your blood boil.
Yesterday, Wilmot’s opponent attended the groundbreaking of the Southwest Montana Veterans Home in Butte. He posted pictures on social media claiming he’d always fight for our veterans.
That’s what he says, but his actions paint a different picture. In the Senate, he callously voted against funding for that very same veterans home.
Wilmot served in the Army National Guard, the Army Reserves, and the Navy Reserves for more than twenty years. He understands firsthand the sacrifices our soldiers make in service to this country, and he will fight for the support they need every day as Montana’s next Senator.
Senator Jon Tester worked for years to make the Southwest Montana Veterans Home a reality for our nation’s heroes in Butte. Steve Daines didn’t do anything to help, and now he wants to take the credit? Sorry, Steve, but Montanans aren’t fooled by your blatant hypocrisy. With this move, Daines joins Senator Tester’s 2018 Senate opponent, Matt Rosendale, in his lip service to veterans. Veterans need our support, our hard work, not just empty promises. We need two United States Senators voting for Montana, not just showing up at ribbon cuttings.
Powerful statement from a veteran like Wilmot Collins on the hypocrisy of these chickenhawk Republicans.
