Multimillionaire Greg Gianforte Attempts to Buy Another Election

HELENA -- Another election and another attempt by New Jersey multimillionaire Greg Gianforte to buy his way into elected office.

"Gone are the days of the Copper Kings in Montana where money buys elections," said Nancy Keenan, Executive Director of the Montana Democratic Party. "Montana won't be bought, not by a New Jersey multimillionaire or by his DC lobbyist donors; both support a disastrous health care bill that eliminates health coverage for 70,000 Montanans and ends protections for pre-existing conditions, while giving tax breaks to millionaires like Gianforte."

Gianforte spent nearly $6 million of his own money in his failed attempt to buy the Governor's office in 2016, and now FEC reports show he's pouring another $1 million into his attempt to buy Montana's lone Congressional seat.

Meanwhile, Rob Quist is running a grassroots campaign with contributions from thousands of individual donors.
