NRA Downgrades Sen. Tester's Rating to a D

Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association today downgraded Sen. Jon Tester’s rating to “D” after he voted against confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Kavanaugh’s confirmation restores a 5-4 majority on the Court in favor of our right to self-defense.

“D.C. Jon Tester once again joined forces with Chuck Schumer and anti-gun liberals to vote against our fundamental right to self-defense,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman, NRA-PVF. “Actions speak louder than words. Downgrading Jon Tester to a 'D' sends a clear message to Montanans that Jon Tester can’t be trusted to protect our constitutional rights.”

Tester’s vote against Judge Kavanaugh marks the fourth time he has voted wrong on a Supreme Court nominee. He voted with Chuck Schumer and the anti-gun liberal left to confirm anti-gun Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court. He also voted against the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch, a pro-Second Amendment justice, to the U.S. Supreme Court.

"Contrary to what Jon Tester says in Montana, he has supported the gun control agenda of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer by voting in favor of gun control in Washington, DC,” continued Cox.

The NRA recently ran an ad campaign highlighting that Sen. Jon Tester cannot be trusted to support the rights of Montana's law-abiding gun owners. In addition to his votes on Supreme Court nominees, Tester has supported criminalizing the private transfer of firearms between lifelong friends and some family members, which the Obama justice department said could only be enforced through federal gun registration.

“Montana gun owners deserve a trustworthy, consistent advocate for their Second Amendment freedoms,” continued Cox. “Jon Tester cannot be trusted to stand with President Trump and support our fundamental right to self-defense.”

Script:

Jon Tester has two faces.

In Montana, he says he supports gun rights.

But in Washington, D.C., his votes tell a different story.

In all three votes on Supreme Court justices, Tester sided with Chuck Schumer and the anti-gun liberal left.

AGAINST your right to self defense.

What Jon Tester says in Montana

Isn’t what he does in Washington, D.C.

Jon Tester has two faces And we can’t trust either one.
