I am concerned about foreign interference in the upcoming 2020 election. It is vitally important that every vote cast in our state, and in our country, be accurately counted. Gov. Bullock has assured me that he is focused on securing our election. Sen. Tester agrees that it is likely that interference is a possibility, and is committed to supporting full funding for election security.

In contrast, every week, for the past five weeks, I have placed a call to Sen. Daines’s and Congressman Gianforte’s offices asking the same question. To date I have not gotten a response from either one. No one who has answered the phone in either office has reported that either representative is concerned about this issue.

Election security should not be a partisan issue.
