Gianforte Raises $534K for Governor Campaign in One Month
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — The Latest on Montana statewide candidates' quarterly reports
U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte has raised over $534,000 in a month in his new bid for Montana governor.
That is more than five times what Attorney General Tim Fox raised over the last three months and more than 12 times what state Sen. Al Olszewski raised over that same period.
The three are competing for the Republican nomination for governor in 2020.
Gianforte also outspent his opponents, spending some $140,217 and already buying ad time.
The technology entrepreneur also loaned his campaign $50,000.
The two-term congressman announced last month that he would not seek re-election but instead try for the governor's office again. He lost to incumbent Democrat Steve Bullock in 2016.
