The League of Conservation Voters and its state subsidiary are launching a radio ad against Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.), who is challenging Sen. Jon Tester (D), for taking “$460,000 from dirty energy companies” while voting to “block the enforcement of a vital mercury pollution law.”
Montana Conservation Voters Executive Director Theresa Keaveny said in a statement that it is “simply wrong for politicians like Representative Rehberg to interfere by blocking scientists at the [Environmental Protection Agency] from” setting air pollution limits.
The ad is set to run in the Billings and Kalispell media markets.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
