He won by a TKO.
IMHO the hatred of the media probably helped Greg win. I know it would not have affected my vote at all. A far as I am concerned the media has brought this on themselves.
Now that’s winning! Plus some whip-ass thrown in for good measure!!
The creepy Dem got 43%. That was not a narrow victory.
maybe he set a precedence on how to handle these liberal aggressive reporters pushing and pushing and pushing trying to provoke conservatives.
The same media that got the entire election wrong is still getting everything wrong. And yet they are still taken seriously.
I’d say he kicked butt...
I hope he packs his brass knuckles before heading off to D.C.
We need fighters, not cucks like Paul RINO.
He’ll have bodyguards to take out the trash next time.
For the cable news pundits it’s 8 November 2016 again.
Thanks to those who voted for him; he IS a good guy and all in for President Trump's policies.
And what did Paul Ryan have to say?
(2) The POS was a Dem operative working for the Guardian
(3) The POS kept badgering him with questions after repeatedly being told to leave
Very good acceptance speech. He even apologized to that ass of a “reporter”. That Quist got over 40% of the vote is testimony to something wrong with a large segment of MT voters.
BINGO - and they c an' remove him ;)
Even so, the Russian cyber-hacking efforts unduly influenced the vote and a special prosecutor must be appointed to determine why the Democrats lost.
I heard that 70% had voted before the incident, but with 30% remaining in this close an election, it COULD have made a difference, tho I think MT would support Gianforte before some wimpy Guardian reporter.
Now it will be interesting to see how the House handles seating him, lost of Ds will object. because they’re such swell fellows, they’d never, ever, do anything like bodyslam a wimpy Guardian reporter.
