Born in Billings, and grew up in Great Falls. I've known Troy for over 15 years since we were both students at the Air Force's helicopter combat search and rescue training school. What none of his classmates knew at the time was that Troy, an enlisted student Helicopter Flight Engineer, and Aerial Gunner, was also a published author, university professor, and highly successful internet entrepreneur. The question we all asked at the time: why would this guy volunteer for a job that guarantees him a trip to Afghanistan, or two, as it turned out? Answer: He cares enough to get involved, regardless of how inconvenient it is to him personally. This is the guy I want representing my interests in Congress.
I have known Troy and his family since 2003. I know Troy personally. Troy is a loyal friend and dedicated family man. I have seen him in action in all aspects of his life and business. His proven dedication to serving this country is exactly what Montana needs to stand up for our conservative values in Washington. Troy has the guts to succeed.
A man who will be honest, loyal, and move things forward for Montanans!
He is a conservative that can defeat Jon Tester.
We believe in the same things.
I support Troy Downing because of his selflessness, his service to others and his unwavering support for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
He has served our country and I believe he has the best interests of the people of Montana. My daughter also serves in the military and believes in him. I truly think he has what it takes to make a difference in Washington for the good of the people.
I support Troy because of his values, his service to our country, and his support for President Trump. I also like that he is financially independent so will not be beholden to anyone and is an "outsider" in the DC swamp.
Troy Downing is music to my ears. I have been waiting for someone like this. We do not need another politician...
We need a Montana man who is working for the people just like President Trump. Being a native Montanan I have great concerns for the welfare of our wonderful state. John Tester has become one of the sheeples and no longer cares about us or our State. Time for a change.
Senator Tester has been telling us one thing here in Big Sky, then voting otherwise in DC as a puppet of Schumer/Pelosi. It's time to drain the local Montana swamp as well.
Because I believe he will help Montana.
I liked his approach the first time I met him in Missoula and will work for him placing signs, etc. He can defeat Tester who must be replaced.
I recently met Troy and found out he is a true and humble man. He is not a politician and will represent Montana well. We need to support and send more Veterans to DC to provide the support to our military.
He's not a politician, just like Trump. He will represent Billings well.
He is a combat veteran and a true patriot.
I agree with his values.
I know that Troy has lived and exemplifies the Warrior Ethos. Now when you go to help "drain the swamp" there are some dangerous "critters" living there.
I am also a Veteran and we desperately need Troy to help us straighten out the mess Jon Tester has created in the VA. It's no secret among informed veterans that Jon Tester does not actually help veterans. All Tester has done with the VA is squander money by creating high dollar jobs for his Democrat friends at the MT VA. Tester has not shown actual concern for the quality of VA care.
I am proud to stand with a fellow combat veteran that will represent the best of Montana in the U.S. Senate. Troy Downing put his life on hold to serve our country, defend our freedoms, and fight for what he believes in serving two deployments to Afghanistan. Troy Downing saved countless lives and rescued our wounded soldiers in the fight. Now, we need Troy Downing to help rescue America. I fully support and endorse Troy Downing for U.S. Senate.
We need someone who will stand with Donald Trump. Someone who is tough on crime. Someone who understands trade. Someone who will put Montana first! Troy is that man.
Fellow Montanans’ I’m honored and proud to recommend Troy Downing for U.S. Senate in the upcoming 2018 Election. As one who knows Montana well, having served in the state and flown both missile security and rescue missions, there is no better candidate to have your back than Troy. I know of no one that has dedicated the life-changing sacrifices for this nation in the aftermath of 9/11 that he has accomplished: successful tech entrepreneur, citizen-airman, and warrior, dedicated public servant, with a great family. Troy Downing has had my back in the most demanding situations our nation required. Troy is ready, able, and willing to do no less for Montana and it’s citizens. Please vote for Troy Downing for U.S. Senate.
I first met Troy at a Warriors and Quiet Waters event that he volunteered for when I was about a year out from my injury. After spending that week together, I can say that he is a honest and caring man. You learn a lot about each other when fly fishing in a boat for that much time especially while he was helping me get around as I'm in a wheelchair. I'm proud to know him and call him my friend.
As a Vet Troy will work to do the right thing for Montana and America!
As a small business owner and native Montanan, I support Troy B. Downing for the U.S. Senate. I believe Troy has the qualities and professional experience to led Montana in the right direction. I have lost faith in the career politician and I feel that an honest hard working, self-made man, such as Troy B. Downing, will do a better job representing the majority of the people of this great state of Montana.
Without hesitation, I completely endorse Troy Downing as the next Senator of Montana. This rich Republic of ours needs principled, honest, entrepreneurial, individuals to represent the people. Troy would bring these attributes to Washington. Troy served with honor in the 129th Combat Rescue Wing as an aviator and volunteered for overseas combat in the wake of 9-11. He continually demonstrated reliability, dedication, and commitment, all the while managing a thriving business. We, as a country, would benefit by having Troy represent us at the federal level.
I had the honor of serving with Troy in both peacetime and in combat as his commanding officer. His dedication, integrity, and professionalism made Troy a standout performer in our Combat Rescue squadron. I’ve trusted Troy with my life many times and would do so again without hesitation. Troy Downing doesn’t just ask what he can do for his country, he jumps in and gets the job done. Troy Downing truly is a great American.
Troy Downing is a 24 karat gold American Hero. He has fought for our country by saving lives and our freedoms while serving 2 tours in Afghanistan. My son also served 2 tours over there. Troy made certain many of our sons came home.Troy has what it takes and is exactly the type of person we need in the U.S. Senate right now to represent Montana. I fully support and endorse Troy Downing to be our next U.S. Senator.
We need a true anti-establishment candidate and not just another politician who goes from office to office. We need someone who represents Montana values, who will vigorously support our President's agenda and who will help make America great again. Troy Downing will fight in the U.S. Senate! Our country faces real threats both overseas and at home. When I think about who I want representing Montana, helping to tackle these difficult issues, I want combat veteran, Troy Downing, who will have our troops '6' in DC.
