Interesting, but this only takes on part of the story. The bigger issue, in my view is, why does Quist deny that it is rental property? Either he thinks he's done something wrong, or he knows he's done something wrong. JMHO, of course.
Definitely some unanswered questions....no doubt about that. In a fairly strong red state like montana, these types of things are going to be pretty difficult for Quist to overcome. I think Gianforte pretty much has it wrapped up.
I know none of us are perfect but I think Quist is unelectable in ANY state. He just has to much baggage. I feel bad for the dude and the democrat party for making him their nominee when it is now obvious he had WAYYYY to many things going against him.
Because honestly I don't think Gianforte is very electable either, and he will win like Trump did, not for who he is but who is running against him.

I completely agree.
For me personally, there is a lot I don't agree with Gainforte on, but I have no issue with him not winning the "Zip code and/or area code lottery" when he was born, and I certainly have no issue with him being a successfull, self-made, wealthy man.
As for Quist, I have always loved his music (own CD's and vinyls, and he is on my ipod), and like Gianforted, I don't agree with many of his political leanings, but I do take big issue with his business dealings and questionable behavior.
Also, iaafan, I know you are being over the top on purpose, but my recollections are that the MT GOP has historically tred pretty lightly on the silly "out of stater" arguement. They, like everyone from MT would brag about the number of generations their families lived in MT, if they could, but having Conrad at the top of the heap, kind of took the out of stater issue off the table. I've noticed that even Gianforte is using Conrads old saying to combat that silliness. IMHO, It's a small minded, non-sensical(?) arguement used when someone doesn't want to talk about real issues.
