BOZEMAN, Mont. — Republican businessman Greg Gianforte won Montana’s sole House district in a special election Thursday, keeping a seat in Republican hands despite facing assault charges for allegedly attacking a reporter who’d asked him about the GOP’s health-care bill.

In his victory speech, Gianforte admitted to the attack and apologized for it.

“I shouldn’t have treated that reporter that way,” he told supporters at his rally here.

The victory, called by the Associated Press, offered some relief for Republicans, who have struggled to sell their Obamacare overhaul, the American Health Care Act. But it was a closer call than the party had expected when it tapped the multimillionaire to run in a state President Trump carried by 20 points — and when Democrats nominated folk singer Rob Quist instead of an experienced politician. With 83 percent of the vote counted, Gianforte led Quist 51 percent to 44 percent, according to preliminary returns.

    Liberals better get use to getting your ass handed to you on a platter!

    NEVER VOTE DEMOCRAT AGAIN! THEY ARE SEWER RATS, ONE AND ALL!

    Reporters sticking a mic in your face? What would you do? i think that jerk reporter got off pretty easy!

  • Walter Flatt

    STICK A MIKE IN MY FACE WHEN I HAVE TOLD YOU NOT TO, BET YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR IT WILL BE PUT BACK IN YOUR FACE QUICK. HE WAS NOT AUTHORIZED TO BE THERE AND WAS TRYING TO MAKE THIS SENATOR DO THINGS HIS WAY INSTEAD OF THE SENATORS. THE SENATOR WAS RIGHT IN BODY SLAMMING HIM. WHAT DO YOU BET THIS REPORTER WAS NOT A PERSON SENT THERE TO TRY AND SWING THE ELECTION. FOLKS, WE THE PEOPLE ARE FED UP WITH THE LYING, BIASED MEDIA AND IF THEY KEEP ON PULLING THIS KIND OF STUNT, I AM FOR BARRING THEM ALL FROM SUCH MEETINGS. I SURE AM FROM THE WHITEHOUSE.

      If the media can’t bring themselves to strive to bring unbiased truth and honor back to their profession then we need to bar them from having any and all access to our president and his family.

  • gvette

    LOL…the DemonRATS thought they had it sowed up. They still can’t win!

  • Robert Early

    He might have received even more votes, if he had killed that scumbag reporter. Today’s liberal press is among the real enemies of this country.

  • LJ

    A 4% win is a “landslide” if you are a DEM. I think the republicans should be content with this win at 7%. A lot of folks hate snotty reporters who don’t stand down after the question is answered or the person indicates they are not going to speak to that topic.It would appear that being aggressive is ok if you are a reporter, but not if you are defending yourself. Bravo to the folks in Montana who apparently can see through the press coverage of this event, which was slanted toward the reporter. Maybe if the reporter had any manners, the incident would not have happened. He couldnt take no for an answer several times. Maybe next time he will.

      I doubt it. He’s like the straw man of Oz. Most liberals are spineless, gutless wonders.

  • kathleen_smith121

    The reporter was harassing him. He did what he should and the people of Montana, who had the REAL story, knew it.

  • Ironmike4610

    WTG Montana Patriots!

  • Rick Vitti

    Just another progressive annoying lost sheep liberal ‘reporter’ bothering people and got what he deserved. I swat annoying flies! Thanks Montana for coming through for the USA, honesty and reality! You lib pukes need to go!

  • maxx

    I received many “urgent” emails from people in Congress in the past few weeks begging for donations. I don’t live in Montana so why should I have any say in their politics. But I had faith that Montana would do the right thing. After the story about the “body slam” I was even more convinced that Montana would elect Gianforte. Liberal losers…… go to HeII where you belong.

  • Webb

    CNN and MsNBC has vilified Greg Gianforte for his actions…
    Yet Liberal MSM will avoid anything by Progressive Democrats, regardless of what actions take place. Would they have vilified Gianforte if he was a Liberal…NO!
    The Conservative held the seat in Congress, Americans are waking up to the fact, Liberals cannot Govern America…Make 2018 another Republican landslide…Kudos Gianforte!!

  • Jean Langford M.

    Too Great Wins….!!! Nice body slam on the SISSY Reporter too…

    • Rick Vitti

      His lil boyfriend comforted him last night with a dish of chocolate sauce

      • Jean Langford M.

        I suppose your comment carries some meaning or message…But, it is convoluted and has no allegoric meaning to me…Unless you want to clarify…It is pure NONSENSE….

        • Rick Vitti

          ?? Yea the reporter is nothing more than another snowflake annoying Phaggott !

          • Jean Langford M.

            Gotcha…I agree with that 100%…We’ll said…”‘Faggot’…for sure…”

  • J Wayne Watson

    Better the MSM journalist get body slammed than the American people. As for Democraps in general, just say no!

  • Askjrsk

    Did the obnoxious reporter apologize? Most his if physically touched will act in defense Montana is a place one DOSENT physically force themselves on one. The reporter needs to be fined heavily. Reporting has sunk to new lows This is a prime example Go Montana MAGA!

  • nokabosh

    Those spineless RINOS in Congress need to get with Trump’s program. Not, is not why the voters elected Trump. Come the mid- term in 2018 the RINOS and and left wing radicals will get their walking papers.

    • maxx

      God I pray you are correct. Please keep spreading the word. My problem is I don’t associate with any liberals so in a way it’s good but in a way it means I can’t spread the word. My people all think alike….all are patriotic conservative Americans with functioning brains. ON TO 2018 and the RINO PURGE.

      • kathleen_smith121

        RINOs wouldn’t believe you anyway, They have to be SHOWN what we mean by getting booted out of office.
        Problem in my areas is that the GOP steering committees are just a bunch of old RINOs and only put up tired, retread politicians RINOs that term limit out of one office and then move to running for another one for us to choose from. Portman is a perfect example.

      • Jim

        Write or e-mail, or call your Legislator tell them to get with the Trump program or start looking for a new line of work! Once we get rid of the PROBLEMS, (LEGISLATOR OBSTRUCTIONIST), the brain dead libturds will dry up and blow away!

  • Raymond J Ambrozaitis

    2/3 OF THE VOTERS ALREADY HAVING VOTED?

  • Daniel W

    DON’T VIOLATE SOME ONES PERSONEL SPACE PERIOD???THAT COULD LEAD TO A CONFRONTATION WHICH IS WHAT I BELIEVE HAPPENED,THIS ACTION WAS PREVOKED>>>>

    • Askjrsk

      Agree.

      • Rick Vitti

        Agree

    • kathleen_smith121

      It WAS, but you will never hear that from the fake MSM.

    • A natural born American

      The God that reporter apparently doesn’t believe in was watching out for him by preventing that body slam from becoming a well deserved punch in the nose! Or maybe he believes in God the same way Kaine does… Seems like Kaine believes just so long as God doesn’t require any commitment from him to always strive to do the right thing.

  • CrustyOldGeezer

    The media needs to have a set of rules for behavior.

    Society sets the rules and the rules are strictly adhered to.

    1: WAIT to be called on.

    2: Ask your question in a polite manner.

    3: allowed ONE followup, and if the question goes unanswered, then it goes unanswered. consider it a warning.

    4: Never argue, it’s ALWAYS POOR MANNERS!

    5: ALWAYS REPORT HONESTLY and NEVER play “gotcha” games.

    FAILURE to ABIDE by the RULES removes the probability that you will be able to walk away from the next event you show up at. Compound Fractures in both legs and both arms is perfectly ok with me…… It won’t take too many instances before the media becomes extremely well mannered!

    • Askjrsk

      Media is obnoxious OBAMA and Hillary have brought rude into society in mass proportions. It is unacceptable behavior. Provoking and grabbing Simone is as well. President Trump should stop press conferences and only tweet bypassing the low life.

      • A natural born American

        I don’t have a problem with my potus’ tweeting daily notes from his perspective. His tweets makes me feel way more confident that DJT isn’t a habitual liar. He’s just another natural born American who’s totally fed up with the status quo of our liberal
        and rino leaders.

        • Askjrsk

          Exactly

  • mike whitty

    This clearly tells me that the PEOPLE have had enough of the B/S from the so called ‘Press’ and that they will support a man or a woman who will take no more of that B/S. People like Greg Gianforte are at last taking the action that most honest people want taken. The guy who got slammed got his just what he deserved! Well done Greg Gianforte!!!!!

    • Askjrsk

      Exactly

  • Humble Servant

    If you did not believe this reporters intent was to frustrate and humiliate Greg into doing something on camera to show him incompetent you are a fool. I think the voters realized this and gave Greg the benefit of the doubt. If your intent was to push someone to the point of getting yourself physically pushed or hurt and you scream physical abuse when it happens don’t be surprised when the public see’s what you are doing and feels for the person that clobbered you. I think the public is getting educated and are becoming quick learners. If I were living in MT Greg would have surely got my vote and I would have told everyone I knew how I felt about this reporters actions. Reporters don’t get a free pass. They have to be held responsible for their actions also, don’t forget that.

    • Askjrsk

      Montana voters obviously saw through the sham.

      • A natural born American

        Thank you God for giving the voters the ability to vote with clarity. No liberal can ever be accused of perspicuity.

        • Askjrsk

          Yes

    • maxx

      What the reporter did is called “verbal harassment” and no it is not okay. It is no different than what the “paparazzi” has been doing for years and years. Nobody condemns a celebrity for fighting back or taking a camera and smashing it when they can’t take the harassment any longer. The First Amendment does not include the right to act like democrat jackass.

  • tryscavage

    Liberals = violence. Democrats = violence. When was the last violent Conservative rally? Never. Pelosi, Hillary, Hitler, Che Guevera, Castro, Obama, Holder, Lynch, Stalin, Kerry- they are ALL THE SAME. Violence, violence, violence. I would not worry too much about a pop in the nose. Had quite a few over my younger life and now? I’m a conservative.

  • Karll

    Ha! REAL Americans hate slimey democrats and particularly their lap dog press.

    • Ken says

      Are you calling the MSM “lap dogs”? OMG – the Liberal Elite Establishment’s Puppets are nothing more than Bobble Heads aka as Talking Heads aka Script Readers….WTH…..Lap Dogs too….;-)

  • Jennifer

    Us Patriots had enough of these Libtards. We deal with their lying Soro’s media, their utter hate, their crying, riots, setting towns on fire. We’re not gonna take it anymore. My advise to the sore bitter atheist Loosers, shut up & get to work. We put up with the worst President Barry Hussein Obama for 8 Awful years & we were NOT happy of the destruction of our country but, we didn’t act like ignorant little angry elves. Libtards beware, were getting more involved on the local levels more then ever & this fight has just begun. We will stand & fight with President Trump to lock up all the corrupt politcans, disgusting pedophiles, sex trafficking pigs, murders & drains that swamp from every angel. No one watches your hate news anymore, people are sick of your lies. Were not embarrassed of President Trump for standing up for working Americans, were embarrassed about your disgusting behavior.

    • Webb

      Jennifer…
      Well Said…Thanking another conservative voice!
