Jon Tester: Touts bipartisanship; voted against DREAM Act

Tester has touted his independence: running ads emphasizing his farming roots, his work on bipartisan Veterans Affairs legislation and his habit of bringing Montana bison meat back from his farm to Washington, D.C. He also voted against the DREAM Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for some undocumented immigrants brought here as children.
