Several unexpected occurrences have already occurred in the Montana at-large special election scheduled for May 25th. First, Democratic candidate Rob Quist, a country folk signer who is running for office the first time, reports campaign receipts of $1.3 million, far exceeding early expectations. Republican nominee Greg Gianforte, a wealthy businessman who spent over $6 million of his personal fortune in running unsuccessfully for Governor, discloses contributions of $1.6 million. The latter number isn’t surprising, but the good news for Gianforte and the GOP is that none of the total figure comes from the candidate. Gianforte has spent all but $542,000, while Quist has $692,000 left in the bank.
