Quist says he will only take union, liberal special interest money

Helena – Democratic Congressional candidate Rob Quist’s campaign says it will only take political action committee (PAC) money from unions and liberal special interest groups.

In a statement released to the media on Wednesday, the banjo player and singer turned politician said he will not accept any PAC money from committees associated with corporations.

Campaign spokesman, Tina Olechowski, later clarified to the Associated Press that Quist will take money from union political action committees and liberal ideological PACs.

A newcomer to politics, Quist defeated several other candidates for the Democrat nomination at a contentious convention. Quist won on the fourth round of balloting.

Quist will face off against Republican Greg Gianforte in a special election on May 25 to replace Congressman Ryan Zinke.
