SCRIPT OF AD
Hi, this is Mitt Romney. I just want to take a moment to get some facts straight. In Montana’s Congressional race you’re choosing between Ryan Zinke, a man who served our country as a U.S. Navy SEAL for twenty-two years. And, John Lewis, one of the people who helped write the failed Obamacare legislation. Mr. Lewis is running ads claiming that Ryan Zinke will cut Medicare. But the opposite is true. Mr. Lewis already cut it! John Lewis and Barack Obama created Obamacare by cutting seven hundred billion dollars from your Medicare. John Lewis did that. That’ s the truth. Send a very strong and honest Ryan Zinke to Congress to protect Montana’s seniors.
I’m Ryan Zinke, candidate for U.S. Congress, and I approve this message. Paid for by Zinke for Congress.
Speaking of the US House race between Zinke and Democrat John Lewis, both candidates debate Monday night September 29th in Billings, Montana. Could the two also debate in Sidney, Montana on October 20th? I spoke with Jessica Davies, Executive Director of the Sidney Area Chamber of Commerce. She says Zinke has confirmed that he will attend, but the Lewis campaign has not yet confirmed.
I reached out to the Lewis campaign last week and his spokesperson has not gotten back to me.
Nonetheless, the US Senate candidates will debate in Sidney, as The Sidney Herald reports:
Organized by the Sidney Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture, who is co-sponsoring the event with the Richland County Farm Bureau, the first debate between congressional candidates to take place in Sidney in recent memory will see state representative Amanda Curtis, a Democrat, face off against U.S. Rep. Steve Daines, a Republican.
For those that can’t make it out to the debate, which will be held at the Richland County Fair Event Center on Oct. 21 at 7 p.m., the chamber is formulating plans to broadcast the event over the radio and on television.
Davies said the chamber is also looking to host a debate for the candidates for Montana’s sole seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Republican Ryan Zinke has accepted the chamber’s invitation to debate on Oct. 20 at the event center, but Democrat John Lewis has yet to respond.
