Field grows in race for Montana’s new U.S. House seat

HELENA — Another Democrat has joined the race for Montana’s new U.S. House seat, expanding an already large field before maps to define the boundaries of the congressional seats are finalized.

Former state lawmaker Tom Winter is the newest entry and joined fellow Democrats state lawmaker Laurie Bishop, public health professional Cora Neumann and lawyer Monica Tranel, who announced their candidacies for the state’s yet-to-be-drawn western U.S. House district earlier this year.
