Republicans are scared about the Montana special election

And the early attacks on Gianforte weren't much different from last year's.
"People like Gianforte, when they see our mountains and streams they probably think, 'Well, that would be great to own and fence in and develop.' But real Montanans say, 'this is our way of life, '" saidQuist.
Sanders, who any day now is expected to unveil a Medicare-for-All bill in the Senate, similarly told the crowd at Montana State University that "Rob and I are going to do everything we can to bury that horrific, disgusting piece of legislation that passed two weeks ago", referring to the AHCA, also known as Trumpcare.
The major candidates and outside groups have sunk more than $8 million into the contest, a huge sum in a state where $250,000 pays for a robust week of television advertising. Groups supporting the Bozeman entrepreneur have spent more than $6.3 million, according to FEC records, including $2.4 million from the Congressional Leadership Fund.
Democrats aren't as bullish about victory as they've been in previous special elections this year. Polling suggests Quist is behind despite all the help, so why spend precious resources on a risky return on investment, one that they don't even need to try to capture the House of Representatives in 2018?
It didn't long for Vermont Sen.
Wicks has said that drug companies shouldn't be able to sell drugs overseas for anything less than they charge in this country, while Quist says the United States should allow re-importation of drugs from less-expensive markets, like Canada, and that Medicare should be able to bargain directly with the industry for lower drug prices. Quist is liberal Democrat who advocates for public health care. Revelations that Gianforte said he was "thankful" for the bill on a private conference call proved a fundraising boon for Quist.
Republican Greg Gianforte, right, welcomes Donald Trump Jr., the president's son, onto the stage at a rally in East Helena, Mont., Thursday, May 11, 2017. Democrats have gone after him for self-funding his gubernatorial campaign and for cutting last-minutes checks to his House campaign too. That's 30,000 more than their group's members made in total for a marquee Senate race previous year in Nevada. But it's a close race, because Greg Gianforte is a clown. She characterized her endorsement of Mr. Gianforte as a push for Mr. Trump's agenda, including less spending on welfare, a key issue for her.
A packed house welcomed Rob Quist at the Loaded Toad coffee shop and Sean R. Heavey gallery on May 18. And Quist hasn't suffered from lack of money.
"I remember talking to people when it first started who said this was a slam dunk, Gianforte's it".
Both parties acknowledge there's little to be learned about the midterms from this Montana race and are carefully managing expectations.Republicans point to an unusual special election environment that allowed millions of dollars to flow to Quist. He and others at the event, say they're concerned about this country. "If he doesn't win, it's all for naught", he said.
Democrats are seeing a revitalized base after Democrat Jon Ossoff almost scored a win in a heavily conservative House district in Georgia last month and a better-than-expected performance in a special House election in Kansas earlier in April.
Please join me in continuing to pray for these individuals and the service to which they're committed on our behalf. Brad Little also spoke during the service, saying it's honor to serve a state filled with courageous men and women.
