Tim Fox, Montana's Republican attorney general and 2020 gubernatorial candidate, tweeted three times yesterday begging antigay fast-food chain Chick-fil-A to open more restaurants in his state and slammed those who criticize the conservative company.
"While your company faces a barrage of unnecessary criticism from San Antonio, TX and Buffalo, NY, I want you to know that Montanans don't discriminate against others based on religious affiliation," Fox wrote to Dan Cathy, who, in 2015, said same-sex marriage is an affront to God. "That's why I'd like to extend Chick-fil-A an invitation to expand its operations in Big Sky Country... Politicians in other states may find it appropriate to use your company to evoke division and outrage, but rest assured, we won't."
Fox tweeted two other times about his desire for Chick-fil-A, including a video of him expressing the same.
