Unclear who may be helping Green Party qualify for MT 2020 Ballot

A group other than the Montana Green Party has been attempting to qualify the party for the 2020 ballot in Montana – but it’s not clear who.

Club for Growth Action, the political arm of a conservative, free-market group that’s been active in Montana elections, filed paperwork last week to finance “an effort to qualify a minor political party for primary elections using a minor-party affiliation.”

But a spokesman for the group in Washington, D.C., told MTN News Thursday it had explored undertaking that effort for the Green Party and then decided against it.
