Lamb, Tranel and Zinke square off in City Club Missoula Forum as Montana’s District 1 Congressional race heats up

Lamb, Tranel and Zinke


The three candidates vying to represent Montana’s restored western congressional district squared off in a debate in Missoula on Monday, and the difference between each became clear from their opening remarks.

Republican Ryan Zinke, Democrat Monica Tranel and Libertarian John Lamb all believe change is necessary and that civility – and honesty – can be restored in American politics.

But they varied on their views over energy, gun safety, housing and abortion, and what they would do to protect a woman’s right to choose. The opening question set a fiery tone to the debate.

The event was hosted by City Club Missoula.
