Republican Greg Gianforte loaned himself $1 million to finance his bid for Montana’s only seat in the U.S. House, as his Democratic opponent raked in huge sums of cash from small, individual donors ahead of a nationally watched May 25 special election to fill the seat vacated by now-Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke.
New filings made with the Federal Election Commission over the weekend show that Gianforte, who made millions from the sale of his software business, has raised more than $3.4 million since launching his bid for Congress.
Meanwhile, Democrat Rob Quist, a musician and cowboy poet making his first bid for public office, has collected nearly $3.3 million through May 5, with most of it — $3.2 million — coming from individual donors.
Quist’s campaign said 56,000 individual donors have given an average of $23 per contribution. The FEC does not require donors who give less than $200 to be identified.
“Greg Gianforte’s attempt to buy another election after losing last time shows he still doesn’t get Montana. He will get the message on May 25th that Montanans can’t be bought and will never be for sale.”
The rest of what I’m reading/watching/etc will be added to the comments. Have a great day!
