MISSOULA – Congressman Greg Gianforte (R-MT) hasn’t ruled out running for the Republican nomination for governor in 2020.

Rep. Gianforte told Montana This Morning anchor Justine Stewart on Tuesday morning that he’s “seriously considering” running for Montana Governor in 2020.

Stewart asked the Congressman if he decided yet to run for re-election to Congress or perhaps seek the governor’s office as some speculated Gianforte would do.

“It’s a great honor to serve Montana. We love this state, we raised our family here,” Rep. Gianforte said.

“On that particular question, I have been talking to people across the state. I have been getting a lot of encouragement to run for governor. I have not made a final decision, but I’m seriously considering it.”
