Last night, Gianforte attacked Ben Jacobs of The Guardian who went to a Bozeman Montana emergency room after he said he was “body-slammed” by the Republican candidate.
The question that made Gianforte snap? Health Care -Congressional Budget Office’s report on the Republican health-care bill.
Within hours, the state largest newspapers in Missoula, Billings and Helena had rescinded their endorsements of Mr. Gianforte, House Democrats quickly released a digital ad featuring the audio recording.
