MISSOULA - Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) met face-to-face with University of Montana student Guthrie McLean before speaking at the reception for the Montana High Tech Jobs Summit on Sunday in Missoula.
McLean was detained in China in July following an altercation with a cab driver. Sen. Daines and his team worked to secure the release of McLean from a Chinese detention center later that month.
"We’re thankful that he was released, and he’s back here on the campus of the University of Montana finishing up his senior year, but I can tell you when we met it was a great moment and we both had smiles on our faces," Sen. Daines said.
