Democrats May Be About To Flip Montana's At-Large House Seat

Eric Ueland Republican staff director Senate Budget Committee holds a copy of President Donald Trump's fiscal 2018 federal budget before distributing them to congressional staffers on Capitol Hill in Washington Tuesday

Quoting the newspaper, the narrators says Gianforte has the "experience, brains and abilities to be successful in Congress" - perhaps a subtle swipe at Quist, who is a professional musician. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) told The News.

The candidate was Greg Gianforte, a Republican running for Congress in Montana's closely watched special election.

Meanwhile, Quist's campaign announced Thursday that it has raised $5 million, so far, what Political Director David Nir described as "a truly insane sum for such a cheap state".

The race to replace Tom Price, now secretary of health and human services, gained national attention after breaking the record for most expensive House race in us history.

It didn't long for Vermont Sen.

"With your help, with your support, President Trump and I are confident that Montana will make the right choice on May 25 when we send Greg Gianforte to Washington", Pence said at a rally in Billings.

Most critically, the state is among the most federally dependent in the nation: nearly 40 percent of its money comes from Washington.

"Nobody thought Quist had a chance to win", Sanders said at a Montana rally.

"Nancy Pelosi in a cowboy hat", jibed one spot, tying Quist to the liberalism of Democrats' House leader.

But this race is closer than it should be.

Quist also criticized the current health care plan being considered in the Senate. "I think there is growing discontent with Trump, with his healthcare proposal". In April, a no-name Democrat came within seven points of winning a Kansas seat that was one of the most pro-Trump districts in the country. GOP outside groups have poured millions into the state, outspending Democrats by a two-to-one margin on TV ads. But the overwhelming majority of outside spending in this race has been for Gianforte and against Quist. And Quist hasn't suffered from lack of money.

The bill continues to prohibit insurers from denying coverage to people with pre-existing health conditions. In 2012, he sold the software company he started in his basement, RightNow Technologies, to Oracle for $1.8 billion, walking away with hundreds of millions of dollars.

The fund has also spent heavily to influence another special congressional election in Georgia, as have the Republican Party committees.

"At the end of the day you win or lose".

"Every time someone raises money from outside (the) district, that does affect some voters, but not very many", Schneider said. "Repeal of the Affordable Care Act without thoughtfully replacing it would wipe out some of our smaller communities", Gov. Steve Bullock, a Democrat and a supporter of Mr. Quist, said in an interview.

Roll Call said that the race isn't quite a toss up yet, but the momentum is moving towards the Democratic candidate, "There isn't enough evidence that the candidates are neck-and-neck to justify a Tossup rating, but there is enough uncertainty with special election turnout, and with previous special election races as a backdrop, for us to change our Inside Elections rating of the Montana race from Likely Republican to Tilts Republican". Gianforte, who said little about Donald Trump when Gianforte ran for governor and lost in 2016, has cast himself as a willing and eager partner of the president this time around. "You have to be who you are", he added.
