No shortage of multimillionaires among MT’s 2018 congressional candidates

HELENA – Montana may have the wealthiest member in all of Congress – Republican U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte – but he’s far from being the only multimillionaire running for federal office this year in Montana.

Three of the four Republicans running in the U.S. Senate race and one of the five Democrats vying to take on Gianforte are in that category as well, according to financial-disclosure documents filed with the House and Senate.

In fact, those with relatively modest means may be in the minority, among the dozen or so Montana candidates running for the U.S. House or U.S. Senate in 2018.
