Republican gubernatorial nominee Greg Gianforte issued a statement thanking Montana voters for instilling their trust in the Gianforte/Robinson team:

It’s clear Montanans want to see a high wage job creator in the governor’s office, instead of these career politicians who have left Montana 49th in the nation in wages. With today’s victory we are now one step closer to unleashing Montana’s economic potential and keeping our kids here in Montana. - Greg Giantforte

Businessman Greg Gianforte and Phillips County Commissioner Lesley Robinson joined supporters in Bozeman for a primary election party Tuesday night, shortly after their victory was announced.

Lesley Robinson added:

We’re very humbled to accept today’s nomination. It’s time to bring the farm team and a little tech support to Helena.  If I have one message for rural Montana, it is this: Help is on the way.

Pop the popcorn, friends, this is gonna be a race to watch!
