“Montana Democrat Kathleen Williams is raising her party’s hopes for a long-shot House gain in a Republican-tilting state,” Bloomberg reports.
“Republican Greg Gianforte is seeking his first full term in office after he won a 2017 special election to his at-large seat after Representative Ryan Zinke was appointed to become President Trump’s Interior secretary. Yet Gianforte, with less than a week to go, has yet to put away the race, according to recent polling.”
“That the result is even close at all is remarkable in a state that Trump won by 20 percentage points in 2016. However, if House Democrats are competitive in states like Montana — and especially if Williams wins — it raises questions of how broad Democratic gains may be on election night.”
