Let’s take a closer look at Gianforte’s week from hell:
Thursday: Greg Gianforte made national news after his fellow New Jerseyite, former Governor Chris Christie, strongly encouraged Gianforte to abandon his run for Governor and return home to New Jersey, or Christie himself was going to retrieve Gianforte from Montana.
Wednesday: Lt. Gov. Cooney blasted Gianforte for supporting the partisan lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act, gut Medicaid expansion, and strip health care away from 112,000 Montanans – in the middle of a pandemic.
MSU-Billings also released a new poll, which found that Cooney and Gianforte are all tied up, just 6 days before Election Day.
Tuesday: Greg Gianforte watched helplessly as Mike Cooney’s final TV ad went up on airwaves across Montana. Cooney’s ad cites endorsements from the Missoulian and Helena Independent Record, and features Cooney’s record of expanding access to health care to nearly 100,000 Montanans and opening up more than 250,000 acres of public lands.
Monday: Greg Gianforte woke up to news that grassroots momentum for Lt. Gov. Cooney continues to surge, after a new Rasmussen poll showed that Cooney has consolidated a dominant lead among independents (52-30) and self-described moderates (62-23). With strong Democratic turnout, the data suggests that Cooney is on track to defeat Gianforte.
“Oof,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel.
