Cowboy Warrior Poet Rob Quist: Shoots TV with Rifle in New Ad to Defends Montanans and Fight Dark Money Lies


Rob Quist’s new TV ad is out and it is possibly the most powerful statement a Montanan running for office has made about defending Montana from outside interests like the Copper Kings, Koch Brothers and Dark Money Billionaires we are seeing run for office these days.

It is a must see:

Much is being written about this race. It is getting tons of national coverage:

The contest pits last year’s losing Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Gianforte, the current favorite, against Democratic cowboy poet and singer Rob Quist and Libertarian Mark L. Wicks.

None of the three contenders has held elective office. Gianforte, 56, a millionaire businessman born in California and educated in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, came to Montana in 1995. He sold his Bozeman-based software company, RightNow Technologies, to Oracle in 2011 for $1.5 billion.

He is known for his support of Focus on the Family, the conservative Heritage Foundation and for his family foundation’s contributions to the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum, near the North Dakota border, a creationist institution whose current newsletter explains that it seeks to point out “that the Biblical worldview is consistent with the scientific evidence we find in the fossil record.” The museum teaches that dinosaurs were among those along for the ride on Noah’s Ark.

Gianforte’s ignoring voters and not holding campaign events is even getting good Montana coverage:

Instead of appearing at large rallies or holding town hall meetings, Gianforte has relied on television ads to get his message out…It’s a strategy that’s been seen across the U.S. as GOP members of Congress avoid town halls and constituent meetings to keep their distance from protesters angry about President Donald Trump’s agenda.

The term “Cowboy Poet” has started to gain traction amongst national media outlets and reminded this ol’ cowboy about another group of people who fought against overwhelming odds and won.

And maybe, just maybe, if we work hard, unite and focus our energy then we’ll be able to tell our tale of victory to our Montana grandchildren:

In the year of our lord Two Thousand and Seventeen,

Patriots of Montana,

led by Rob Quist,

Angry and outnumbered by Dark Money TV ads,

Charged the fields of the Special Election,

They fought like Cowboy Warrior Poets,

They fought like Montanans,

and Won their Freedom from their Billionaire Overlords,

  1. Kinda shoots holes in the phony NRA ad that double G’s buddies ran recently. And for those that want to compare this ad to that of the idiot that pretended to shoot drones, hardly a comparison. Rob hits the target with his message and his rifle.

  2. That is the best political ad I have ever seen.

  3. All Gianforte has is his money, no one likes the guy so he has to tear Rob Quist down. Anyone who knows a little about shooting a rifle can see that Quist is quite proficient with one. Kind of tears the negative adds Gianforte and the republicans have been running to shreds. Great add, now where the hell is the DNC and DCCC, time to get in the game.

  4. It’s time for you to move out of your mom’s basement and get a job!

  5. Blow up your TV!

  6. Tin, you need to wipe that orange cheeto ring off from around your mouth, it is kind of disturbing.

  7. Love it!

  8. Yippy tye yay, here’s a man who knows what “grab leather” means and uses rubber boots to shovel BS, not $400 fly-fishing waders.

  9. This guy is a buffoon..

    My sense has always been that to win an election, a candidate must have integrity, be honest, be real and have a true commitment to live his/ her values and those he/she represents. It is not all about the money…jerry brown won the race in CA against Whitman a multimillionaire , he spent less money and his values came through, her big money interests did not win over voters. So quist stands up for his values. I believe he will go for the best interests for Montana…
