Tester a tireless worker for vets

Montana’s Sen. Jon Tester has been a tireless worker for Montana veterans, as I know from personal experience. Medical issues are often complicated, especially in a state with a relatively small population spread over a vast area. Veterans sometimes have to travel considerable distances to obtain medical care. Sen. Tester and his staff are capable and caring. They’re very responsive and they get results.

Jon Tester is a man of the soil, of the people. He’s not one of those guys who toddled off to Washington with the hope of making a fortune for himself. Not a rich man who looks out for his fellow richies. Let me tell you, when you’re hurtin’, it’s good to have the big guy standing up for you. That would be Jon Tester.

Over the last year and a half alone, President Trump has signed eight of his veterans’ bills into law.

The VA needs a qualified leader who can deliver on the promise our country has made to veterans and Jon Tester is the right man to defend that promise in Washington, DC. Montanans know he stands with our vets, and I stand with him 100 percent.
