Pro-life Montana Sen. Steve Daines easily defeated his pro-abortion challenger Tuesday in a race that Democrat leaders had hoped would help them regain control of the Senate.
The Daily Wire reports Daines won re-election against Gov. Steve Bullock, a pro-abortion Democrat.
Infamously, Bullock vetoed legislation in 2019 that would have protected newborn babies from infanticide. The Montana Born-Alive Infants Protection Act simply would have required that babies who survive abortions be provided with the same medical care as any other infant born at that stage of development.
In contrast, Daines has a 100-percent pro-life voting record from the National Right to Life Committee. He recently voted to protect unborn babies from late-term abortions by supporting the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act as well as newborns from infanticide by voting for the federal Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

According to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, Daines defeated Bullock by 6 percent. In his victory speech, he reassured voters of his commitment to protecting unborn babies from abortions.
“Montana is a very special place,” Daines said. “Like you, I want to keep it that way. We are so grateful tonight that the voice of Montana has been heard loud and clear.”
According to the AP, the race saw a record $100 million in spending as Democrat leaders tried to flip the seat blue. Republicans have a narrow majority in the U.S. Senate, and it appears that they will continue to hold a narrow majority in 2021 – though several states still have not announced final election results.
