A pro-Trump super PAC is putting out an ad trashing Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., for revealing allegations that led to the withdrawal of Veterans Affairs Department nominee Ronny Jackson.
"In Montana, we value integrity and support our president," a narrator says in the ad from the America First Action super PAC.
"But Jon Tester spread false information about a respected Navy admiral, helping D.C. Democrats derail President Trump's Veterans Affairs nominee."
"Jon Tester's been part of the D.C. swamp for far too long. He's betrayed our trust, our veterans and our president," it continues, ripping Tester as "disgraceful" and "dishonest."
Tester is facing re-election this year in a state Trump won in 2016 by more than 20 points, The Hill noted.
Trump has lashed out at Tester after Jackson withdrew his nomination amid a series of allegations ranging from drinking on the job to overprescribing drugs. Jackson denied the allegations.
The White House said Tuesday that Jackson was no longer serving as the president's personal physician, but remained an active-duty Navy doctor assigned to the White House.
