Carroll College to host 2 GOP gubernatorial candidates

November 14, 2019 GMT

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Carroll College will host a debate this month between two of the three candidates seeking the Republican nomination for Montana governor.

A statement distributed Thursday by Attorney General Tim Fox’s campaign says the debate will be held at 6 p.m. on Nov. 26 and will feature Fox and state Sen. Al Olszewski.

The third GOP candidate, U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte, previously said he could not attend during Thanksgiving week.

The Lewis and Clark County Republican Central Committee was the debate’s original sponsor but decided to postpone its involvement until all three candidates could attend.

Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock can’t seek re-election because of term limits, leaving the 2020 governor’s race open. Four Democrats are competing for their party’s nomination.
