Daines provided this statement to KGVO News.

In his first year of office, President Biden has failed Montana,” said Daines. “He’s created an out-of-control inflation crisis that has wreaked havoc on Montana families, small businesses and workers. Instead of putting Montana and America first, Biden killed the Keystone XL pipeline, left our southern border wide open to illegal immigrants and drugs, and orchestrated a disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. He’s still pushing a multitrillion dollar reckless tax and spending spree and forcing his overreaching vaccine mandates on Montanans. To say this year was anything but a failure is a slap in the face to Montanans and the American people. I will continue to fight back against Biden’s radical agenda that hurts our Montana way of life, and I’m thankful Montana has a great leader in Governor Gianforte who stands with me in this fight.”

Governor Gianforte also released a statement on his reaction to the completion of President Biden’s first year in office.

In just his first year in office, President Biden has imposed overreaching federal mandates, undermined American energy independence, fought for higher taxes and trillions of dollars in new spending, failed to secure the southern border, overseen a rise in violent crime, tried to pass the buck on rising prices, failed to fix our broken supply chains, and put his hyper-partisan, progressive wish list ahead of the needs of the American people,” Gov. Gianforte said.

“The contrast between what’s happening in Washington and what we’re accomplishing in Montana is stark. In Montana, we’re repealing ineffective, impractical mandates, cutting taxes, holding the line on new spending, cutting red tape, making our communities safer and more secure, creating an environment where businesses can thrive and create good-paying jobs, and making Montana an even better place to live, work, raise a family, and achieve the American dream.”

KGVO was not able to find any public statements from either Congressman Matt Rosendale or Senator Jon Tester dealing specifically with their reactions to the President’s first year in office.
