Montana Special Election Makes Tough Campaigning for Libertarian Candidate

There’s a congressional election coming up on May 25th and three candidates are currently out barnstorming the state to gather votes and remind people that the special election actually exists.

Republican Greg Gianforte and Democrat Rob Quist have big-name parties to help promote their message and a head start. Libertarian Mark Wicks was picked at a nominating convention on Saturday March 11, nearly a week after his competitors, and now he’s out explaining how he differs from the crowd.

“With Gianforte there’s a lot of stuff I agree on, but I think he goes a little too far right, I’m a little more friendly to some of the alternative communities than I think he will be,” Wicks said. “With Quist, I’m not in favor of sanctuary cities, I think we need to know who’s coming into our country, I also know that immigrants are some of the best people we have in this country, but we’ve gotta know who’s here.”
