Republican Montana State Senator Ryan Zinke kicked off his campaign to succeed Rep. Steve Daines (R-MT) this week by saying America needs to focus on “the real enemy.” By that, he meant the former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, who he referred to as the “antichrist.”
According to the Bigfork Eagle website, Zinke made those remarks in front of a Republican audience at the Marina Cay Resort Monday. He was joined by author Scott McEwen, who co-wrote the book American Sniper about the life of the late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.
Zinke is one of several Republicans currently campaigning to take Daines’ House seat, who in turn is running to replace Democratic Senator Max Baucus who is set to retire this year.
Video of Zinke’s remarks have not surfaced yet, but if it does, we will make sure to post it right here.
