Helena, MT – Chairman Jeff Essmann of the Montana Republican Party released the following statement on Governor Bullock’s record as Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association (DGA), which now includes losing two Governor’s races in addition to raising at least $3 million in dark money:

As Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association (DGA), Governor Bullock had one job: Win the competitive Governor’s races in the 2015 election. But, he suffered a staggering defeat last night.

I believe Bullock foreshadowed his own loss next year when he blamed the Democrats’ defeat on ‘the year of the outsider,’ because voters are tired of an agenda that only seeks to empower and grow government– not help better the lives of our families and children. People are looking for outsiders, and insider politicians like Bullock have failed them.

Bullock’s so-called leadership here in Montana has allowed incompetence to run rampant in his administration and he has failed to improve our salaries and wages, which rank near the bottom of the nation.

Republicans will have great momentum going into 2016 because Montanans are looking for proven leaders who can deliver results and provide greater opportunities for our families. We need a Republican Governor who will create high-paying jobs so our kids can stay and raise their families’ right here in Montana. I believe Montana Republicans will continue to expand on our victories in 2016.
