HELENA – Montana Democratic Party Executive Director Monica Lindeen today released the following statement on the divisive campaign ads between GOP gubernatorial candidates Tim Fox and Greg Gianforte:
“The Republicans running to govern our state are showing just how out of step they are if this is what they think every-day Montanans care about,” Lindeen said. “Montanans deserve a governor who will be more concerned about moving Montana forward instead of curtailing access to our public lands and taking healthcare away from 100,000 Montanans.”
Fox’s campaign is running a series of online ads that attack Greg Gianforte, giving him an “F” rating overall as Montana’s lone Congressman. The ad depicts Gianforte, already a one-time loser in the Governor’s contest, receiving two additional “Fs” and a grade of D- (minus) from several ultra conservative right-wing groups.
Just last week the Billings Gazette ran a story on the Democratic gubernatorial candidates keeping things clean in their primary.
“Montanans have come to expect strong, principled leadership and our crop of 2020 Democratic governor candidates is no exception, Lindeen said. “Montanans can feel confident the Governor’s office will be in good hands with any one of our candidates who will continue to fight for all Montanans.”
