As grassroots support for Cooney swells, Gianforte forced to rely on his own millions to prop up stalled campaign
Fueled by grassroots support, Lt. Gov. Cooney is entering the fall statistically tied with New Jersey multimillionaire Greg Gianforte, despite Gianforte spending millions of his personal fortune attempting to smear Cooney’s record of results for Montanans.
In the last 8 weeks alone, Cooney has visited with Montanans in Billings, Bozeman, Butte, Dillon, Glendive, Great Falls, Havre, Hamilton, Helena, Kalispell, Lewistown, Livingston, Miles City, Missoula, Sidney, and Polson.
Never too keen on facing Montanans and answering questions from the press, Greg Gianforte is now refusing to release his latest fundraising numbers, concealing the amount of his own money (already $2.5 million) that he’s dumped into the race.
“While No Show Greg hides from voters behind millions of dollars in baseless attack ads, Mike Cooney is showing up and earning support from Montanans across the state,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel. “Mike-mentum is real – and we look forward to riding it all the way through November.”
