There are four Republican Candidates currently filed to run in the primary for the new Western Congressional District in Montana. Two of the four I know little about. However, I know the other two very well. My personal experience with Ryan Zinke shows that he is a man who says what he means and means what he says. My personal experience with the other former state legislator is unfortunately quite the opposite.
Ryan Zinke has a legacy of accomplishments not just fiery rhetoric. He increased oil and gas production to make the U.S. energy independent for the first time in 60 years; he expanded access for hunting and fishing on millions of acres of public lands; he protected Paradise Valley from mining; he moved the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) west from D.C.
I will support someone with a proven record of accomplishment who I may not always agree with but at least I know to be honest. Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
