Democratic Montana Senator Jon Tester’s new campaign ad celebrates his opposition to the Biden administration’s attempt to pull funding from school hunting programs, but fails to mention that he initially voted for the law that put the programs in jeopardy.

The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, which Tester supported, led to the controversy by including an amendment that banned taxpayer funds for “training in the use of a dangerous weapon.”

Despite his role in supporting the initial law, Tester took credit for the Protecting Hunting Heritage and Education Act, which resolved the funding crisis. (Trending: Epstein’s Brother Finally Breaks His Silence)

“When I heard the Biden administration was trying to block funding for gun safety and hunter education classes, I knew Jon Tester would do what he always does: give ‘em hell. Jon got his Republican colleagues onboard to stop Biden’s policies and defend our Second Amendment,” a teacher said.

This has led to criticism from Montana Republican Senate candidate Tim Sheehy, who accused Tester of trying to benefit from the crisis he helped create.

“Tester voted for Biden’s plan to deny Montana schools funding for hunter safety programs, but now that he’s up for re-election, he’s trying to profit on the crisis he helped create and is now actually taking a victory lap that he resolved the very crisis he allowed to happen under his watch,” Sheehy said.

Tester, facing re-election in 2024, is seen as vulnerable and has attempted to distance himself from Biden, who lost Montana by 16 points in 2020.
