The Bromance continues: Remember when Zinke thought he should be Trump’s VP?
HELENA -- The relationship between Congressman Zinke and Donald J. Trump heated up quickly this spring when Zinke gratuitously promoted himself as vice presidential material.
“I would be honored to be the Vice President,” Zinke said in May. “Mr. Trump has a wind at his back and fair seas ahead.”
But those seas have been pretty rocky for Congressman Zinke lately.
- Polls show Congressman Zinke is slipping and Denise Juneau is gaining ground.
- Congressman Zinke’s still standing by Trump even as the list of prominent Republicans (like Sen. John McCain, denouncing the Presidential candidate continues to grow.
- Montana veterans called out Congressman Zinke on his blind support for Donald Trump after he attacked a Gold Star family and mocked a veteran war hero.
“Congressman Zinke has thrown out every hint that he’s more interested in advancing his own political career in Washington D.C. than he is serving Montanans,” said Nancy Keenan, executive director of the Montana Democratic Party. “How else do you explain ignoring his fellow veterans, women and all of Montana to campaign on behalf of the most degrading and disgusting Presidential candidate this country has ever seen?”
