MTGOP Statement on Wilmot Collins Seeking to Challenge Daines in 2020

Helena, Montana – Chairman of the Montana Republican Party, Debra Lamm, released the following statement today after Helena Mayor Wilmot Collins announced he will seek the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in Montana:

Wilmot Collins is just another liberal Democrat who will be a rubberstamp for the far-left’s radical agenda. Collins will stand against President Trump every chance he gets and reverse all that we’ve accomplished these last few years. He will be a vote for open borders and eliminating ICE, restoring voting rights for terrorists and felons, seizing our guns, giving Social Security and Medicare benefits to illegal immigrants, and bankrupting our nation with Medicare-for-All and the Green New Deal. Collins will be in lockstep with the extreme far-left – and not with Montanans.”

Senator Daines has fought tirelessly to protect our Montana way of life – standing in strong support of our Second Amendment Rights, expanding access to our public lands, securing our borders and protecting our citizens, cutting taxes and creating high-paying jobs across the state, and keeping the federal government out of our lives. Daines will be a consistent voice for our Montana values and work with President Trump to Keep America Great!
