Sanders ally seeks upset in race shaped by guns, money problems and nudist gigs (via Fox News)

Another special election, another Bernie Sanders-inspired Democratic candidate.

This time, an upcoming House race in Montana features country singer-turned-candidate Rob Quist, who’s trying next week to win the seat left open by Ryan Zinke’s appointment as Interior secretary.

The odds are stacked against him in his bid to defeat Republican Greg Gianforte. The seat has been occupied by Republicans for the past 20 years, in a state Trump carried in 2016 by 20 points.

And Washington Republicans have done their best to portray Quist as a fringe candidate, most recently blasting out a news story about him playing several gigs at a nudist resort.
