Democrats in Butte last night got a chance to try to find differences between five candidates running for their party's nomination to challenge Congressman Greg Gianforte next year.

Surprise: The candidates agreed on a lot. But over two hours and more than a dozen questions, some differences did emerge.

State Rep. Tom Woods of Bozeman says there wasn’t one specific incident that was the tipping point that led him to become a candidate for Montana’s lone U.S. House seat.  The Democrat says he's just  frustrated with the direction the country is currently heading.

This includes the millions of dollars it takes to run for Congress.
