Today, following reporting by TPM that wealthy Maryland real estate developer Matt Rosendale has been misleading Montanans about being a cattle rancher, American Bridge released a video of seven times Matt Rosendale repeated this lie on the campaign trail.
TPM’s explosive report exposes Matt Rosendale as a liar who has been falsely telling voters for years that he is a rancher. “His rancher claim appears to be all hat, no cattle,” reports TPM. But public records and his own past statements indicate the longtime real estate developer never actually ranched.”
Just as damning, Rosendale’s claims have gotten more outrageous with his run for U.S. Senate: “The higher the office he’s run for, the more he’s talked up his supposed ranching experience… [But] it appears that he’s never owned any cattle.”
“When the cornerstone of your campaign biography turns out to be a lie, why should voters trust a single thing you say?” said American Bridge spokesperson Amelia Penniman. “Matt Rosendale can pose for the cameras in his freshly ironed flannel in front of someone else’s cattle, but you better believe Montanans can tell this fake rancher is just a desperate politician.”
