1st District congressional candidate Ryan Zinke introduced former United States President Donald Trump to endorse him late Monday night.
“I remember when President Trump was president, we had two dollars worth of gas, the border was secure, and he was fighting the swamp,” Zinke began. “There is no better defender of American freedoms than President Donald J. Trump. And I have the honor to introduce to you the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, sir.
Trump began by emphasizing the importance of the upcoming congressional elections.
“I just want to talk to you for a few minutes about a critical primary election taking place in your state on Tuesday, June 7th, which is fast approaching and absentee voting is already underway,” President Trump began. “The big day is June 7, and it’s very important. I would like to ask each of you to come out and vote for Ryan. He’s a great friend of mine. He’s a great person with a great family, everything is great. This is Montana’s first congressional district, as everyone knows, and he was my secretary of the interior, as you know, and he did an incredible job in terms of energy dominance and also independence energy, and we’ve actually become dominant and increased our federal energy revenues.
President Trump praised Zinke specifically for his work as Secretary of the Interior.
“He opened up land for power generation and all sorts of other things, including for people to use,” Trump said. “Together we have built our national parks, our forest infrastructure and expanded access to public lands and we have opened up millions and millions of acres for hunting and fishing. It was amazing what we did in a reasonably short amount of time.
The former president concluded with a glowing endorsement from Ryan Zinke.
“Ryan has my complete and total approval,” he said. “With his help and with the help of everyone, this country will be straightened out. We are going to get rid of the political career of crazy Nancy Pelosi once and for all. I just want to remind you again that absentee voting has already started so you can do it, but election day is June 7th. I will come to see you. I love this part of the world and I love your state, and please vote for Ryan Zinke, and we’ll see you all very soon.
Zinke is one of five leading candidates for the Republican nomination for the new 1st District Congress Headquarters, with Dr. Al Olszewski, Mary Todd, Mitch Heuer and Matt Jette.
