It’s pretty cool that a candidate for governor is not only attending the Montana Governor’s Cup Walleye Tournament, but over the weekend, Congressman Greg Gianforte (R-MT) actually fished in the tournament.
Why is that such a big deal? Frankly, if you talk to folks in Eastern Montana- they’ll tell you that Eastern Montana often gets ignored by politicians and bureaucrats in Helena. And don’t try telling them that you’ve been to Eastern Montana because you’ve been to Billings- that will get you laughed out of the bar pretty quick. (Pro-Tip: Visiting Billings doesn’t count as visiting Eastern Montana)
