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.

It's funny, democrats have demonized "rich" people so much that now they feel like they have to hide their own income sources! LOL!
Pretty tough for Rob to use the anti-greedy-rich-guy platform if he owns rental property... And it's hard to play the "pay your fair share" card if he isn't reporting some of his income.

It's funny, Montana republicans have demonized "outta-staters" and "them gay people" so much, but they're all lining up to suck Gianforte's Jersey schlong now! LOL!
Pretty tough for them to use the anti-outtastater platform since he's from New Jersey...And it's hard to play the "I'm a Montanan" card when he isn't from Montana.

See how this works?

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 think the democrats went with the guy who "looks like a republican" since it worked with Schweitzer and Tester. That said, I'm not sure that Amanda Curtis would have done any better. She has strong support among party loyalists, but I think she's pretty far left to attract conservative leaning moderates who may have voted for Schweitzer/Tester/Bullock.

I agree with you on Curtis. She is also unelectable in Montana. There has to be someone closer to the middle in the democrat party that would fit the bill.

Completely agree with you assessment on what the party was thinking.

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.

The democrats ran Quist because he is broke and 100% controllable.

They paid his debts off and he owes them for the entirety of his term, hes 70 and in his health wont make it through one anyway. He was the perfect candidate for them

Speaking of "outta-staters"..the first 10 Montana Governors were those. Pretty impossible for the first bunch to be born "in-state" when there was no Montana when they were born. But it wasn't until 1949 the first Montana native, democrat John W. Bonner of Butte was elected. Three of the earlier governors were from Kentucky and one from North Carolina confirming Montana's deep roots in the south. It was gold from the Virginia City region that helped keep the confederacy going.
One of the most colorful "modern governors" was J. Hugo Aronson from Sweden. Elected in 1953 as a republican he was featured in ads on a horse and huge ten gallon hat exorting his constituents to "VOTE FOR HUGO, THE GALLOPING SWEDE" in a thick Swedish accent. Governers Cooney and Stevens were from Canada.
Eight of Montana's twenty-one governors are MT natives.

Hugo was awesome, his grandson and I were friends until he killed himself 5 years ago. He always told stories of barely being able to speak English when he was elected. Funny and driven old guy.

Meanwhile the Editors of the Missoulian come out and endorse Greg G, over Rob Q. Some feathers are getting plucked as you read this.
