A Republican candidate for Congress in Montana compared former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the anti-Christ.
The candidate, state Sen. Ryan Zinke, is one of five Republicans competing for the nomination to succeed Rep. Steve Daines (R-MT) who is likely to run for the seat being vacated by Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT).
At his campaign kickoff event, according to the Bigfork Eagle, Zinke said “we need to focus on the real enemy.” He then went on to criticize Clinton calling her the “anti-Christ.”
Actually, Zinke, once a member of the Navy SEAL unit that killed Osama bin Laden, is not new to partisan bomb-throwing. Two years ago he started an anti-President Barack Obama super PAC.
“Navy SEALs, Special Operations Personnel and Veterans across America have been outraged since Barack Obama conveniently took credit for killing Osama bin Laden for political gain,” an announcement of the super PAC said, according to The Huffington Post.
Zinke may be in a crowded primary field but he seems to be on the National Republican Congressional Committee’s radar. The House Republican campaign committee was involved in registering Zinke’s campaign website.
