Special Election Goes to Gianforte


Despite being embattled by an alleged assault involving a member of the press, Bozeman entrepreneur Greg Gianforte won Montana’s sole U.S. House of Representatives seat in the May 25 special election.

Facing opponents Democrat Rob Quist and Libertartian Mark Wicks, Gianforte received roughly 50 percent of the vote. In Valley County, he took home 62 percent of the vote or 1,902 out of 3,028 total votes. Quist received 855 votes and Wicks received 270 with one write-in vote cast.

Only 18 percent of voters in the county cast ballots on election day; with 548 votes total and 348 of those in-person voters going to Gianforte.
