Republican Senator Steve Daines has said he would protect people with pre-existing conditions in his campaign ad, but his records show the opposite.
Senator Steve Daines of Montana, who faced Democratic opponent Governor Steve Bullock, ran a campaign ad that said Steve Daines would protect Montanans with pre-existing conditions. His official website says he supports Obamacare's full repeal and adds that they must always protect those with pre-existing conditions, without specifying how that would be achieved. Daines also voted to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions and voted to expand other insurance plans, which are not needed to cover pre-existing conditions.
Christina Wilkes, Montana Democratic Party Communications Advisor, said that Daines misrepresented himself to Montanans. As of Nov. 12, Steve Daines has 67% votes in Montana.
