The first sign of Democrat panic in Montana is when they claim victory–even if they lose. Results haven’t even begun coming in and the flop-sweat odor is wafting through Democratic offices and friendly media.
From the Washington Post:
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.
