Congressman Greg Gianforte (R-MT) announced his much-anticipated running mate in the race for Montana governor and lieutenant governor on Sunday night in Billings.
Gianforte selected Great Falls lawyer and former Montana Supreme Court candidate Kristen Juras to serve as his running mate. Juras told the crowd that she is excited to be Gianforte’s running mate, and to make Montana “an even better last best place.” She has also hailed her Montana ranch family background. Juras is a part of the well known Galt and Gustafson families in Montana.
Gianforte made the formal announcement in the crowded race for governor during a rally style event at The Pub Station- a popular concert venue in downtown Billings.
