Stopped by the place that full-time Californian Ryan Zinke is claiming as his residence so he can run for Congress in Montana...and it’s a hotel.

The king of the grift & most corrupt politician of my lifetime #mtpol #mtnews #mt01
How in the world does someone enter politics with $2 million net worth and leave it with $36 million?

Corruption of course. Zinke made almost $1 million alone this year in consulting fees to the oil, gas, and mining industries.
Hope you’re enjoying your tan over there in Santa Barbara, Ryan!

Us full-time Montanans really appreciate out of state millionaires trying to divide our communities and buy our political offices :) #mtpol
For anyone fearing of doxxing - this is all very public and something Zinke has been doing for years.

He sold off his actual home here long ago to move to Santa Barbara.…
He also made a deal with Halliburton’s chairman to fund his microbrewery across the street as he rubber stamped massive oil rights for their corporation to pillage our public lands.

Noticing a theme here?…
I love beer more than the next Montanan...but c’mon Ryan. Selling off public lands to oil barons? Do you have any idea of the history of Montana and the 🚩red flags 🚩that sets off for those of us who actually live here?? #mtpol #mtnews
We’re running for Congress in Montana, not Santa Barbara. Chip in here:

Wild thing happening in Montana:

MT GOP is refusing to allow retention bonuses to be sent to Montana nurses and instead only wants them sent to out of state recruits.

Why? A blatant attempt to harm union workers & pay to bus in new voters who are anti-vax & anti-mask.
MT GOP policies have been consistently harming Montana’s frontline healthcare workers.

From prohibiting hospitals from enacting vaccine requirements to preventing communities to enforce mask usage to using the highway patrol to intimidate hospital’s medical decisions...
The goal has been clear: divide our communities and turn them against public health workers - all for a zealot political ideology.

This has led to massive amounts of healthcare staff exodus from the profession and the state.

My father took his own life recently. A day calling family friends for the campaign and having some of them burst into tears upon hearing my voice has been...really tough.
Your condolences are taken to heart - thank you on behalf of my family. It has been a bit since our loss, but not too long. Hold your loved ones close.
The conflict between being human and being a candidate is no more obvious than when working within our awful campaign finance system.

We owe a big thanks to @SenatorTester for a transformative investment in our nation’s infrastructure - w/ perhaps no bigger winner than Montana 👏 #mtpol
Politics isn’t pretty - but we got there. And now that this bill is passed it deserves to be viewed in it’s own light...

The fact is that this is a big win for the American people.
The other fact is: both @SteveDaines and @RepRosendale voted against this big win for Montanans.

They consistently put themselves (and their corrupt donors) ahead of the people of this state. Shame on them. #mtpol #mtnews…

Idk, Dave...I’ve flipped a Trump +11 district in Western MT before. +7 sounds winnable to me. But I guess I’m a not your traditional Democrat #mtpol
Western Montanans have a deep sense of identity. This is my home. These are my neighbors.

And they’re tired of corrupt politicians like Ryan Zinke that fly in from their California homes when the weather’s nice. #mtpol
We used to vote for the person - not the Party here. Problem is that both parties have let us down with their corruption and false promises.

It’s the politicians that have failed us. But I still believe in Western Montana and it’s people. #mtpol

Couldn’t agree more w/ @ryangrim

“If they (Dems) had passed their reconciliation bill by the summer and spent the campaign talking about everything in it - they’d have had something to run on.

It’s a crazy idea but maybe they might actually want to try it sometime.”
I’m a Montana Progressive and Union member running on the crazy idea that our government should serve the interests of Working Families - not corporations and billionaires.

It’s simple...if a policy or bill doesn’t help working Montanans - I won’t support it.
• Universal preschool & affordable childcare
• Vision, dental & hearing coverage for seniors
• Lower prescription drug prices
• Paid family & medical leave
• Climate action
• Tax cuts for Working Families...

...are the bare minimum investments our communities deserve

While @GovGianforte made it illegal to require vaccines at hospitals and my neighbors are being loaded into refrigerated trucks, his Dept of Labor begs me and other former healthworkers to re-certify.

I will help my community. But our Gov has got to pull his head out of his ass
*@GovGianforte knows exactly what’s he’s doing. He can’t acknowledge that Montanans are dying bc he shares the blame - he pushed the anti-vaxx bills, he denigrated even getting vaccinated at all.
So we’re stuck with him tweeting about cream of wheat (no joke) while a trailer full of dead Montanans sits less than a mile from the Capitol building.
