MTPR: New Jersey Millionaire Greg Gianforte Feeds Image As “An Outsider,” “Carpetbagger”
 
Gianforte Continues to Plow Millions Into His Campaign, Cementing His Image As Out-Of-Touch With Montana Values
 
Helena, MT – Greg Gianforte – the wealthiest elected member of Congress – is drawing criticism for his blatant attempts to buy his way into the Governor’s mansion. During his failed gubernatorial run in 2016, Gianforte gave his campaign $5.5 million. Gianforte has already contributed $1.5 million to his own campaign this cycle, an amount that will almost certainly climb after the June 2nd primary election.

According to MTPR, Gianforte’s reliance on his own wealth to fuel his campaign for governor “feeds into this image of Greg Gianforte as an outsider, as a carpetbagger.” Even Gianforte’s fellow Republicans have characterized him as “a toxic political figure who is trying to buy the race,” and a “copper king willing to trample on anyone… to get what he wants.”

“Greg Gianforte is an outsider who doesn’t understand Montana values,” said MDP Executive Director Sandi Luckey. “Montanans have a long history of defeating copper kings, and we’ll do it again by defeating Greg Gianforte this November. Montana is not for sale.”
