The following is a press release from Troy Downing for U.S. Senate:

BOZEMAN, Mont. - Troy Downing, combat veteran and candidate for U.S. Senate, announced Tuesday retired Army Lieutenant General and former National Security Advisor to President Donald Trump Michael Flynn will attend a campaign rally in Billings on May 6.

Gen. Mike Flynn is an American Patriot and combat veteran who has served our country for 33 years. He is coming to Montana to support Troy Downing, a fellow combat veteran, because he is the best candidate to defeat career politician Jon Tester.

Troy Downing enlisted in the military at age 34, after the attacks of September 11, 2001. He served two tours in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in a U.S. Air Force Combat Search and Rescue Squadron. Troy is also an entrepreneur who merged his high tech startup with Yahoo! in the late 90s.

Troy Downing, the candidate for U.S. Senate, gave the following statement:

"If we don't push back against the establishment and career politicians and stand up for our own, who will? I am proud to take a stand and be joined by fellow combat veteran and American Patriot, Gen. Mike Flynn. Together, we are going to send entrenched left-wing career politician Jon Tester back to the farm."
