Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Montana Tim Sheehy ripped Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) as “New York’s third senator” and contended that America “needs a new generation of leaders” during his appearance on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Saturday.
Sheehy, a Navy SEAL combat veteran who has secured many impressive endorsements from prominent Republicans since his campaign launch last month, seeks to secure the Republican nomination and challenge Tester in the general election.
The stakes of the Montana race are high for Senate Republicans. Whoever secures the nomination will have a chance to unseat the vulnerable three-term Democrat, providing a crucial pick-up opportunity for the GOP in their quest for a majority in the next Senate.
Sheehy called the opportunity a “turning point” while speaking with Breitbart News Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle.
