Letter to the editor: Don’t buy in to Monica’s lies about ‘debates’

Fair and honest debate is key to any political race — it allows voters to engage directly with the candidates and hear their positions on the issues on their hearts and minds. Recently, Monica Tranel has been using a clever, but deceptive campaign tactic: she’s hosting campaign events, dragging along Libertarian John Lamb to make it seem legitimate, and calling them debates. She claims Ryan Zinke is ducking voters, but Zinke has already debated Tranel and is committed to two more statewide debates hosted by legitimate news organizations. And the last time they debated, Monica embarrassed herself, angrily grabbing the microphone out of Zinke’s hand. Don’t fall for Monica’s lies.
