Ryan Zinke wins GOP nod in race for new Montana House seat | app


HELEN, Mont. (AP) – Former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke won a surprisingly close race on Thursday to become the Republican nominee in the race for a new U.S. House seat representing Western Montana, a victory that comes after days of manually counting ballots in one county.

Zinke beat former state senator Al “Doc” Olszewski by just over 1,600 out of 84,500 votes cast in the race, or 1.9 percentage points, according to preliminary numbers.
