Gianforte visits Billings, discusses his run for Congress

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

As we gear up for the special election to fill the Congress seat, Greg Gianforte made an appearance in Billings' St. Patrick's Day parade. Afterward, he held a meet and greet downtown to discuss his run for the lone Congress seat.

Gianforte says Montana needs a strong voice in Congress especially with too much federal overreach. He adds, he will work with President Donald Trump to enforce immigration laws and have a strong boarder.

Gianforte says he's not going to agree with everything trump wants to do but will always be on Montana's side.

"Montana's voice has to be heard back there and Montana needs somebody on Montana's side and given that I've traveled the state, been to every county multiple times, I feel like I really have a finger on the pulse of what's going on," he said.

KULR-8 also reached out Rob Quist's campaign to hear how he plans on getting up to speed if he were to win the Congressional race.

They sent us this statement that reads in part:

"Rob is running to be an independent voice for all Montanans and will work to protect access to our public lands and stream access rights, fight to help hard-working Montana families get ahead by fixing the unfair tax system that benefits multi-millionaires at the expense of working families and stand up for Montana's veterans who deserve quality health care."
