[Video] Candidate for Congress Shoots Down “Government Drone” in New Campaign Ad
Matt Rosendale, a candidate for Congress this year (holy crap, elections are just around the corner!), has some strong opinions about the federal government as well as drones.
He makes his opinions clear in a recent campaign ad.
In the ad, Rosendale uses a hunting rifle to open fire on a “government drone” (did he really fire a live round at an angle into the air?).
According to the National Journal,
As a “government drone” hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and “spying on our citizens.”
Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and “downs” the drone with a single shot.
“The federal government is too big and too powerful,” Rosendale says. “I’m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives,” he says.
Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana’s at-large seat in the House.
