  • Working With President Trump and Delivering Results for Montana

    Greg Gianforte, Congressman for Montana|Oct 31, 2018

    Dear Voters, Montana is special. That's why my wife, Susan, and I raised our four kids here. It's why we started a business here in our home – one that created hundreds of high-paying, Montana jobs. And it's why I ran for Congress – to protect our Montana way of life. I'm honored to serve as your lone voice in the U.S. House of Representatives. It's a responsibility I take very seriously. The only way I know to do this job is stay connected with Montanans where we live, work and recreate. In my...

  • Gianforte on Taxes

    Greg Gianforte, Political Views|Dec 27, 2017

    Santa came early for hardworking Montanans. Republicans have kept their promise to the American people and delivered tax reform that will let you keep more of what you earn. In just a couple of months, you’ll see more of your hard-earned money in your paychecks, families will have much needed relief, and small businesses can grow, invest, and create more Montana jobs. This was long overdue – actually 31 years overdue. The last time Washington reformed the tax code, Ronald Reagan was in the White House, and I had a full head of hair. Much has...

  • Gianforte's Campaign Promises

    Greg Gianforte, Political Opinion|May 17, 2017

    The direction of our country will be decided in the coming months and I’m committed to making sure Montana’s voice is heard in Washington. I’m running to be Montana’s next Congressman because Montanans deserve a champion who will stand strong for our values and our way of life. I’m thankful to have built a life, started a small business, and raised a family in Montana. I fell in love with Montana more than 40 years ago on a class trip backpacking in the Beartooth Mountains. 24 years ago, my wife, Susan, and I chose Montana to raise our four...

  • Greg's Top Ten

    Greg Gianforte, Going for Governor|Oct 26, 2016

    When I first came to Montana more than 40 years ago, I fell in love with the natural beauty and the people. I knew, back then, that I wanted to make a life in Montana. When my wife and I founded a technology company in our home in Bozeman nearly two decades ago, people told us that a global business could not succeed in Montana. They told us the state was too rural, they told that we didn’t have good enough connectivity, they told us that we couldn’t attract qualified workers. Well, we proved the naysayers wrong, and built a business that grew... Full story

  • I'm Dedicating My Salary to Manufacturing Scholarships

    Greg Gianforte, Going For Governor|Aug 10, 2016

    It’s been less than a year since I first announced a potential run for Governor of the Great State of Montana. Since that time, I’ve driven over 46,000 miles across the state, meeting with Montanans in cafés from Ekalaka to Eureka and seeing my own bed only once or twice a week. One of the greatest joys has been staying with folks in their homes, rather than staying in hotels, because it has allowed me to really connect with families all across the state. During one visit, a young man in the Flathead told me his story. He was the first in his f...

  • Why I'm Running

    Greg Gianforte, Political Opinion|Jan 27, 2016

    Since first falling in love with Montana 40 years ago, I knew that I wanted to make a life here. When we started our high tech company RightNow Technologies here in Montana, we had a lot of people tell us it wouldn’t work. People said, “Greg, you can’t start a global technology business in Montana.” Not only did we ended up creating over a thousand jobs, giving folks in places like Bozeman an average salary nearing $90,000 per year, I was also able to raise all 4 of my kids here. Fast forward to a few months ago. We know that there are Montana...

  • Considering Colstrip

    Greg Gianforte, Eyes on Energy|Jan 13, 2016

    What happens if we lose Colstrip? “It’ll look like Ground Zero.” That’s what the mayor of Colstrip told me during a recent visit. To Colstrip moms like Cheryl Fulkerson, it means her husband and her son may both lose their jobs in the coal industry. And, it means the place that she has called home for 21 years may no longer exist. I could see the tears in Cheryl’s eyes as she introduced me to local officials and business owners concerned about the future of Colstrip. Even the realtor told me, “No homes are selling.” But it’s not just Cheryl...
