U.S. Sen. Steve Daines of Montana joined U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina on Wednesday to voice their opposition to a proposal to grant Washington D.C. statehood.

"Sometimes I think it's important for Senators, Congressman, in fact, most the time, get out of this city, go out to where the real people are at, across our country and ask them what they think," Daines said.
