Sen. Booker headlines Montana Democrats' annual dinner​

http://www.greatfallstribune.com/story/news/2017/03/18/sen-booker-headlines-montana-democrats-annual-dinner/99373022/

I'm very glad to see that some national Dems are taking Montana's special election seriously. Thank you, Senator Booker!

HELENA, Mont. (AP) Montana Democrats brought in one of their national party's rising stars to headline their annual dinner, but the hundreds who gathered Saturday wanted to hear more from one of their own: musician Rob Quist, who must convince fellow Democrats that he can win back the state's only congressional seat and help national Democrats push back against the Republican tide.

He will have to prevail in the May 25 special election against Republican Greg Gianforte, a Bozeman entrepreneur and former gubernatorial candidate with deep pockets and a determination to win public office.

Quist has been traveling the state as he did while on tour with his musical group to win support from voters. He will also have to convince donors to invest in his campaign.

"This House seat should not be his consolation prize," Quist said of his Republican opponent, in a speech meant to energize the 1,200 Democrats from across the expansive state meeting for the Mansfield Metcalf Celebration at the Lewis and Clark County fairgrounds.


The GF Tribune used to be a decent paper, but has become much more conservative than it was in my youth.

1. As a former resident of MT

 

and a big Rob Quist fan, I feel qualified to say that the endorsement of an NJ Senator may not be the best recommendation.
