An executive board member of the Gallatin County Republican Women has resigned after telling the host of a statewide radio program she would have shot the reporter Republican Congressman Greg Gianforte assaulted this spring.

U.S. Representative Greg Gianforte says he believes comprehensive tax reform is the best way to help Montanans keep more of their money. The Montana Republican made that remark Friday on the Northern Broadcasting System’s "Voices of Montana" radio program.

As fires continue to rage, some in Montana are calling for fundamental changes in government forest management policies. That sentiment is being echoed by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke.

Zinke was a guest on the Northern Broadcasting Network’s radio program Voices of Montana Tuesday. Just he came on, host Jon Arneson took a call from a longtime listener.
