Fresh off of a major endorsement from President Donald J. Trump- Navy SEAL veteran and GOP US Senate candidate Tim Sheehy dropped by our radio studios Wednesday morning.

Monday morning, I noticed that Congressman Matt Rosendale (R-MT) was in Billings and stopped by a few radio stations in town, but never dropped in and saw the Breakfast Flakes in Billings? These guys have been on the air for over 35 years in Billings on the Cat Country radio station and have a huge following.

One of "The Flakes," Paul Mushaben, told me that he already endorsed Tim Sheehy in the race. He's got an actual shot at finally taking out liberal Senator Jon Tester (D-MT). Why would Rosendale jump into the race this late in the game and upset the apple cart? That's basically what Paul told me Tuesday morning.

Either way, Tim Sheehy was solely focused on taking shots at Tester and Joe Biden instead of Rosendale on Wednesday morning. He stopped by both the Montana Talks and the Cat Country studios Wednesday AM.

Tim Sheehy on the Trump Endorsement

Tim Sheehy: He recognizes, like you just said, America is at a crossroads and in 2024 Montana is at the center of the political universe. This race, as you correctly stated, will determine the direction of this nation for potentially the next decade. And he recognizes that. He's a patriot. I'm honored to have his support. But he knows how important this race is, and he knows when he wins the White House- he's gonna have to have a Senate to enact his agenda. And the one thing standing between his Senate and what it is today is Jon Tester, and that's why he's supporting us.


What About All the Phony Attack Ads Against Him?

I pointed out how the Democrats and their dark money outfits are already spending $1 million a week against him, but how the effort may also be backfiring against the Democrats. The Democrats are afraid to have Sheehy be the candidate in November, so they are trying to knock him out before the primary, but instead they are likely rallying GOP voters behind Sheehy even more.

Tim Sheehy: Truth is- I fought for my country, wounded on the field of battle. My wife fought for our country. After I was wounded at discharge, we came home, started our businesses from scratch with an all veteran founding team. Everything on the line on those businesses- businesses that protect our community. Aerial firefighting. I fly our water bombers. It's a dangerous job. We put out wildfires protecting farms, ranches, savings lives...I'm proud of that. I'm never gonna apologize for the fact that I've built a successful business in our state, created jobs, created veterans jobs. And you know, these aren't dating apps and yoga pants- these are important jobs that protect our country.
