A win for the Democrat, cowboy-poet Rob Quist, would give his party its first major victory during the Trump presidency — and deliver a House seat held by Republicans for more than 20 years. A victory for Greg Gianforte, if narrower than President Trump’s 20-point victory last fall, would be spun as fresh evidence of GOP decline.
Gee, we lost, but by less than Hillary did to Trump, so it’s a win! Even with an assault charge and an embarrassing last day for Greg Gianforte, Democrats have their spin machine ready for a big loss.
This is the first sign of their panic.
