New at-large Congressman Greg Gianforte (R-Bozeman), who was elected in the late May special election (50-44%) to replace Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke (R), is already drawing a large field of Democratic challengers. In the past few days, two former state legislators have joined the Democratic primary battle for the state’s lone congressional seat. Former state Sen. Lynda Moss (D-Billings) and ex-state Rep. Kathleen Williams (D-Bozeman) announced their candidacies that now expand the Democratic candidate field to seven contenders. Still, no word as to whether Democratic special election nominee Rob Quist will again run. Mr. Quist’s campaign spent more than $6.6 million during the special election contest.
