Re: “Quist and Gianforte shoot first, pander later

Wicks will be getting my vote, and this after I gave Quist $25 on March 6.

The drip drip drip of his financial decisions was just too much. This last one about hiding apartment income from the tax agencies is just despicable. Quist is as bad as Walsh was.

Re: “A keg up: Tester backs bill to slash excise taxes on brewers and distillers

Our brewery scene is great, especially the jobs. But let's not forget that alcohol use and abuse costs this state half a billion dollars every year.

Re: “If hunting is such a core 'Montana value,' how come most Montanans don't hunt?

My ancestors came here in the 1880s but I've never gone hunting. I was raised by two Helena bureaucrats. They didn't hunt so...there you have it. Besides that, it's pretty expensive. Even going fishing can be expensive, if you're starting from scratch.

Re: “Quist and Gianforte shoot first, pander later

Follow the money. Quist was doing really well until after he won the nomination and the Dem Party got their hooks in him. At that point he switched from spending most of his money on direct voter outreach to spending it with out-of-state firms. Why'd he do that? Because the 8 staffers he's paying over $20,000 a month to told him to.

Quist is not his own man, and should he ever vote in Congress, he'll rely on his staffers to tell him what to do.

It's sad. It's sad that it's come to this. I just want this joke of a race to be over. It's embarrassing.

Hopefully we'll have a strong candidate in 2018 that'll tell the Dem Party to go jump in the lake.

Despite 'helping' candidates, the Dem Party hasn't been able to help a candidate win this seat in over 20 years.

They hurt more than they help. It's obvious.

Follow the money. The next Quist/Gianforte finance reports are out May 8.

Re: “Berniecrats gone Green

Missoula had around a 25% turnout in the school election this week. That was a mail-in ballot election.

Bernie's not going to go anywhere besides Missoula...and what good will that do? Sure, 9,000 came out to see him last May, but will that bump our terribly low off-year turnout numbers? I doubt it.

Even election officials are expecting no more than 60% turnout in this election, and I don't think it'll be that high. Missoula's going for Quist, so Bernie here is just preaching to the converted.

I think the biggest problem is that people just aren't fired-up about Quist. He doesn't inspire them. Just look at the 'crowds' at his campaign events.

Re: “The Legislature's 2017 session was a mixed bag

You didn't feel the need to mention the $1.1 billion worth of infrastructure the 2017 Legislature passed? Strange.
