Montana Papers Retract Endorsements Of Gianforte

The Hill reports:

Newspapers in Montana are pulling their support from GOP House candidate Greg Gianforte following an alleged physical altercation Wednesday with a reporter. Three newspapers have rescinded their support for Gianforte, who was charged with misdemeanor assault after allegedly slamming a reporter from The Guardian to the floor at the candidate’s campaign headquarters in Bozeman. The incident reportedly came as reporter Ben Jacobs posed questions about the Republicans’ ObamaCare repeal plans — a charge that Gianforte denies.

Gianforte had touted the support of the state’s three largest papers in his latest campaign ad.
