Montana Democrats Nominate Musician Rob Quist for Special Congressional Election

The Democratic Party of Montana convened today to nominate their candidate for the upcoming special Congressional election, which fills the seat vacated by Ryan Zinke, now Secretary of the Interior. A total of eight candidates were named, and after multiple rounds of voting, Rob Quist is the Democratic Congressional candidate. Mr. Quist is a musician perhaps best known for founding the Mission Mountain Wood band. A Sanders supporter in 2016, he is running on a progressive platform, and will be banking on anti-Trump energy to gain a Congressional seat for the Democrats. The Republican Party, which is favored based on recent history to retain the seat, convenes tomorrow to nominate their candidate.
