Cooney, Gianforte gov-race cash: Where’s it coming from?

In the campaign money chase for Montana’s 2020 gubernatorial race, Republican Greg Gianforte and Democrat Mike Cooney are drawing pretty much from the same well – except when it comes to their own pockets.

Gianforte, Montana’s U.S. congressman and a wealthy businessman from Bozeman, has loaned or donated about $2.6 million to his campaign – almost half of his $5.4 million total.

Cooney, the state’s lieutenant governor, has relied entirely on donations for his $1.8 million in campaign funds, through last weekend.
