Prominent Montana Republican: Greg Gianforte is “The Epitome of a Copper King”
 
Greg Gianforte Is “Adding Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars to His Campaign Coffers… To Buy Montana Votes”
 
Helena, MT – Montana Republicans are dialing up their attacks on New Jersey millionaire Greg Gianforte, just a week before the unprecedentedly vicious Republican gubernatorial primary. The renewed criticism comes as Gianforte – whose net worth is close to $200 million – reported loaning his campaign another $500,000 last week, bringing his total self-contributions to over $1.5 million. 

On the Montana Values podcast, former Republican mayor of Kalispell, Tammi Fisher, slammed Greg Gianforte as a “copper king willing to trample on anyone… to get what he wants.” Referring to Gianforte as “an arrogant criminal”, Fisher declared, “[Gianforte] can’t beat the Democrat in November.” She continued, saying, “the only Montanan excited for Greg to bring his vision to Montana is Greg Gianforte. It’s his money, not Montanans, that [is] supporting his election.” According to Fisher, any suggestion to the contrary is “horsesh*t.”

“Democrats and Republicans alike stand ready to reject Greg Gianforte’s blatant attempts to become another Montana copper king. No matter how much money Gianforte is prepared to spend, Montana voters can’t be bought,” said MDP Executive Director Sandi Luckey. “Greg Gianforte’s unique unfitness to serve has made this Republican primary so nasty – I welcome any Republicans who’d like to join our quest to defeat him this November.”
