During a Republican Lincoln-Reagan dinner held at the Watson Irrigation Training Center outside of Townsend, state Senate President Scott Sales criticized New Jersey multi-millionaire Greg Gianforte for losing the governor’s race and opposed Gianforte’s bid for the U.S. House seat.

Senate President Sales told Republicans, Gianforte “didn’t listen to the people” and that going forward Republicans needed to nominate “someone who was electable.” 

Sales’ critical comments come on the heels of several other Republican leaders coming out against Gianforte and conservative blog, E-City, writing Why Republicans Should Say, “Thanks, but No Thanks,” to Greg Gianforte.
