One on One with Gianforte: the 'current administration is failing Montanans'

Republican gubernatorial candidate, Greg Gianforte, says Governor Steve Bullock is "waving the white flag" when it comes to fighting for Montana energy. He sat down with Wake Up Montana's Becky Hillier to discuss the upcoming election.

"The current administration in Helena is not standing up for our fuels," Gianforte says. When asked what his solutions would be as governor in response to new EPA guidelines concerning coal, Gianforte says his focus will be on technology.

"I have complete confidence in American ingenuity. It could help us figure out how to burn coal more cleanly."

Gianforte agrees his new campaign-advertisement blitz is to highlight the cornerstone of his campaign: to keep Montanans in the state by creating jobs.

"This is why I'm running for office," he says.

Gianforte says he will be making a campaign announcement on Tax Day regarding state taxes and state spending.
