Rosendale’s New Campaign Ad:
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Rosendale has a new campaign ad on the airwaves that features President Donald Trump when Trump was in Great Falls, Montana.
The ad is 30 seconds long and features some of the best attack lines from Trump going after U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D-Mont.).
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a President in a campaign ad go after a candidate so negatively as Trump did to Tester. Usually, Presidents say something nice about their candidate and that’s it. We are in a new age.
Watch the Rosendale ad HERE.
Ohio 12th District Special Election:
No matter what the final results show, with the Democrats making it a very close race in the very red Ohio 12th district, they should feel good about making it a close race. This should give them some momentum for November.
Republicans should be happy that the Democrats couldn’t push the ball over the goal line for the victory.
The last results I saw had Republican Troy Balderson winning by about 1,750 votes over Democrat Danny O’Connor. Politico reports that there are still 3,300 provisional ballots and some more absentee ballots outstanding.
President Trump sent a congratulatory tweet to Balderson “on a great win.”
