MISSOULA – Congressman Greg Gianforte (R-MT) hasn’t ruled out running for the Republican nomination for governor in 2020.

Gianforte told MTN on Tuesday morning that he’s “seriously considering” running for governor.

Gianforte was asked if he has decided yet to run for re-election to Congress or seek the governor’s office as some speculate he will do.

“It’s a great honor to serve Montana. We love this state. We raised our family here,” Gianforte said. “On that particular question, I have been talking to people across the state. I have been getting a lot of encouragement to run for governor. I have not made a final decision, but I’m seriously considering it.”
