Fourth Democrat Challenges Gianforte
Former Billings lawmaker Lynda Moss is throwing her hat in the ring for Montana’s lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. KTVQ.com reports that, in a filing with the Federal Elections Commission this week, the Friends of Lynda Moss is listed as her principal campaign committee. She served in the Montana State Senate for eight years from 2004 to 2012, and as Majority Whip from 2008 to 2010.
In 2012, she ran an unsuccessful primary campaign for Montana Public Service Commission, and she’s the fourth to seek the Democratic nomination, challenging incumbent Republican Greg Gianforte, who won a special election in May to fill the seat vacated by Ryan Zinke, who resigned to become U.S. Secretary of the Interior. Moss joins Bozeman state Rep.Tom Woods, Billings attorney John Heenan and former land trust director Grant Kier of Missoula.
