This U.S. Senate candidate’s move just left Chuck Schumer fuming

If Democrats have any chance of taking control of the U.S. Senate, they must keep Sen. Jon Tester’s seat in Montana.

The bad news for the “blue wave” is President Trump won the Big Sky State by 20 percent in 2016.

And now one candidate just made a move that could turn this race – and control of the U.S. Senate – on its head.

Democrat incumbent Jon Tester has maintained a slim lead over his Republican challenger, Matt Rosendale.

But that could all change.

A Libertarian Party candidate has dropped out of the race and endorsed Republican Matt Rosendale.

In his announcement, Libertarian Rick Breckenridge said, “The reality is I’m only going to get three or four percent of the vote, and [Rosendale] has the character to combat this issue. I’m standing in unity and solidarity with Matt to combat dark money in politics.”

Breckenridge’s announcement comes on the heels of a suspicious illegal campaign mailer that was designed to siphon votes from Rosendale to the third party candidate.

The mailer did not identify who paid for it, a violation of federal election laws.

Fox News reports:

The move came after an anonymous campaign mailer from an unknown group, which is a violation of state and federal election laws, went out to people in a bid to garner support for the Libertarian candidate and thus undermine Rosendale’s election chances.

“Matt Rosendale wants to use drones and patrols to spy on our private lives,” the mailer read. “Rick Breckenridge is a true conservative and opposes government intrusion into Montanans’ private lives.”

It remains unclear who’s responsible for the mailer, but the tactic resembles the efforts by Democratic groups that supported Tester’s 2012 bid, where a mailer was sent out to promote another libertarian candidate.

Tester won that race by 4 percentage points thanks to the Libertarian candidate who received over 6 percent of the vote – just enough votes to swing the election if the votes had gone to the Republican candidate at the time.

This development means the Montana race is a true tossup.

And it could be the final nail in the coffin for Chuck Schumer’s hopes of becoming Senate Majority Leader.

Democrats need to flip at least two Senate seats to gain control. And they can’t afford to lose Montana.

    I’m very busy! I’m almost thirty years old pro-life and pro-family relatively young woman and mother of six minors, six small children. I will never stay home on Election Day. I will go vote on this Election Day in November sixth too. I don’t vote pro-abortion and pro-homosexual Democrats and Republicans. I vote every election against these murders of the unborn children, sodomy, feminism, gender ideology and the Democratic Party. I’m going to vote and will vote only just for pro-life and pro-family Republicans. The so-called Democratic Party is the extreme ultra left Neomarxist party. The so-called Democratic Party wants ultra left Neomarxist dictatorship in the USA! Politicians and supporters of the Democratic Party are Neomarxist extremists and the so-called Democratic Party is the extreme ultra left Neomarxist party. Their pro-abortion and pro-sodomy agenda isn’t the agenda of the American people. This is agenda of the Democratic Communist Party U.S.A. and they will say or do anything to obstruct the Trump Administration. The Democratic Party and so-called Democrats want stand for anything that will harm the country in their quest to transform the United States into a totalitarian communist state. President Donald Trump is doing wonderful job of trying to do his best to clean up the mess of last administration! Remember this, a vote for a Democratic Party is a vote for ultra left pro-abortion and pro-sodomy Communism. Vote pro-life and pro-family Republicans!! The Democratic Party and so-called Democrats want to control your life, tell you what you need to hear, what to do and tell you how to live. Most of our young people have no idea about our government, our History of our Country because the History Books have been changed to fit the ultra left and their communist ideas. Unfortunately some people are just too stupid to know the truth and their ignorant gullable minds are of the sheep nature, being more than willing to be led to a slaughter by the filthy dirty ultra left wing ultra liberal Neomarxist dogs. Please everybody, vote Republican and save this good Country! God bless America, the American People,the pro-life and pro-family Republicans! God bless President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence for always doing what is best for the American people!

    I hope if Mr. Breckenridge is this kind of conservative, he will elect to run again as a Republican in the future. Sounds like he has moral values. God bless you, sir.

  3. Shirley says:

    Nothing could please me more than to see Schumer go down the tubes!!! What a jerk of the worst kind.

  4. Mott says:

    I think the ONLY seat the Dem’s will have is the one called “John” and rightfully so!

  5. truthistruth says:

    what – – – in a state won by corrupt Donald Trump by 20 points, the Democrat is LEADING in the polls!?! That is a HUGE turn around – – – the conservatives are having to FIGHT to overcome the lead in a state that went solidly for Trump. Where is this Red Tsunami you guys have been promising?

    • truthistruth says:

      Kind of also noticed that you ask only about control of the Senate and nothing about the House. Is that because you have already given up on control of the House?

    • Richard Knoch says:

      Sorry for your impending loss, but its hard to overthrow an incumbent!

      Best put your Mental Health Counselor on speed-dial as you may need him/her Wednesday morning 😊

    • Baylee Perry says:

      Dear No-truth is still no-truth:
      I believe the article we are responding to is talking about Chuck Schumer’s not becoming the leader in the Senate. Said nothing about the House.
      BTW, the Republicans will gain 2-3 seats in the Senate & hold the House.

    • Fr Tom Martin says:

      Anyone who supported Clinton and
      obama obviously does not know the meaning of corruption

      • marleen davis says:

        Amen! All your comments to truthistruth (who by the way wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped him in the face) are absolutely spot on. And everyone, don’t forget to wear RED when you go to the polls!!!

  6. Tom Hill says:

    That letter sounds like a democrat ploy.

  7. K says:

    The dimwits just keep PROVING that they can not win without cheating!
    STOP THEM NOW – VOTE RED ON 6th or before!

  8. Mo says:

    You can bet that a Soros funded group is behind that mailer. Soros is desparate to destroy America and turn us into a Communist third world sh*thole with the Demoncraps in control. The New World Order Elites believe we are to stupid to live our lives on our own and that they should control our everyday lives.

    • marleen davis says:

      Probably Soros and Steyer. They are both Sons of Satan and hate our President so much they will stop at nothing to defile everyone for their deranged cause.

  9. Tony Bell says:

    Bless Rick Breckenridge for his sacrifice. A great patriot.

  10. Marilynn Reeves says:

    It took a good man that cares about his State to bow out and endorse his opponent rather than take a chance on Democrats winning.

      • allan allen says:

        i’m from Montana also, and was tempted to leave warm, sunny Florida to vote against the POS Tester…

        schools there must be dumbing down the population these days…

        i shook my head at the Univ of Montana students voting for that sleaze bag

        • marleen davis says:

          You mean the students that are taking brainwashing 101 in all their classes from instructors that have an “agenda”? After you get the right people elected, especially on the school boards, you can get the schools “repaired” with proper educators, that is what it is going to take to re-educate our young so they aren’t these liberal addicted and addled idiots we see now.

    Let’s let try this. Let the illegals into America and send the Democrats to Mexico and points south. The illegals can’t be any worse that the Democrats!

  14. Michael says:

    • russell says:

      Michael that goes for me to

    • Irisheyes2c says:

      I’ve never liked Schumer, I get a creepy vibe from him. Maybe it’s his nasal voice and his NY accent or his reading glasses, he has ALWAYS creeped me out and I get a pedophile vibe from him. Maybe he reminds me of a teacher, who was exposed as a pedophile, Schumer sounds and looks so much like him, including perching his reading glasses at the end of his nose.

      • Mark says:

        Unfortunately, I live in Liberal New York and I hate that MF Schumer. he is a scum bag of the highest order. He will lie about anything to get his way. I would love to beat him to death with a stick. Not a real big one though because I want it to last a long time.

    • k says:

      You said everything I’m feeling… THANK YOU!

    • Scott Palmer says:

      👏👏👏👏👏

    • marleen davis says:

      That’s right! They cannot walk you down to the gas chambers like they did in the Holocaust if they can’t take away your weapons!

  15. David S says:

    I love it. Schumer will eat so much crow. Republicans will gain at least 4 seats. Republicans hold the house by 3 or 4. Nancy Pelosi’s worst nightmare. They will become worthless, but they will still feed the MSM their bile, and they will eat it up because they all hate Trump. It is simple logic; because Trump has been so successful, they become non-sequitur. Besides, anyone who despises his success has to be anti-American. That is just pure, true logic.

  16. James P Hutchins says:

    Vote Republican Party GO MAGA.

  17. Bill says:

    I can’t wait to see Schumer blow his top. That sob will never be Senate majority leader. He is a washed up piece of crap.

  18. William Riley says:

    NYC Dem US Senator Chuck Schumer thinks Montana should be run like NYC.

    Montana is a state filled with hard working ranchers, many of whom are Christians and very Independent. Say Good By to Sen Tester.
