Here’s a hot take that’s been circulating, Greg Gianforte is running for Governor, AGAIN, in 2020. I think he will easily be the Republican nominee with $315 Million dollars to play with in the race the other candidates will have a hard time keeping up. I have seen nothing from his past campaigns to show me that he is not going to buy this primary.
Here’s a hot take that has not been circulating, could Brian Schweitzer be a great candidate for Governor in 2020? Sounds like a smart plan for Democrats to think about. I would love to see him and Gianforte debate. Ol’ “that dog don’t hunt” Schweitzer, Branding Iron Brian taking it to Gianforte? That would not only be entertaining, but it could really be a great way to build a bench that wins for Dems in 2020. Just a thought that popped into my head the other day…my mind wanders.
As to other statewide offices in Montana, here are my thoughts:
Al Olszewski will be running for Auditor. He has been positioning himself to fill Rosendale’s shoes when Rosendale runs for Congress in 2020.
Derek Skees will run for Secretary of State. Skees has been a fan of making it hard to vote, he has made this very clear and his failed auditor race in 2012 shows he has ambitions for higher office.
Jesus that is scary to think about.
Elsie Arntzen will be the one holdover who runs again at OPI. Yikes, perhaps Montanans could choose someone who can speak in complete sentences to lead the organization tasked with teaching our children? Just a thought.
