GOP vs GOP, the latest weapon: Leaflets!
HELENA -- The Montana GOP infighting has gotten worse. This week, a dark money group called The Montana Association of Conservatives sent leaflets to state legislators bashing some representatives for what they called throwing “away their 'conservative' principles to advance liberal ideology.”
See the 12 page leaflet here: LINK.
"The wheels are falling off the GOP wagon," said Nancy Keenan, Executive Director of the Montana Democratic Party. "As a radical right-wing faction of the GOP takes control of the party, Montana Republicans are more focused on attacking each other than they are addressing issues important to our state and its hard working families."
These leaflets are a continuation of the GOP infighting we've seen. First the Helena Independent Record uncovered Republican lawmakers "skewering" each other on their conservative credentials. Then GOP Chairman Jeff Essmann was attacked by his own party after soliciting colleagues for ways to attack Governor Bullock. Now it seems the fighting is getting even worse.
As the Montana GOP infighting story continues, Democrats will continue working to ensure greater economic success for all Montanans.
