One Democrat hoping to unseat Republican Congressman Greg Gianforte next fall has an early lead in his campaign bankroll, according to the latest federal finance documents.

John Heenan, an attorney from Billings, has so far raised more than $325,000, nearly a third of that money coming from a loan from the candidate to his campaign. Heenan was the first Democrat to jump into the race against Gianforte, and has released several campaign videos since his campaign kickoff in August.  

Four Republicans have so far declared their intent to challenged Tester in 2018.

Troy Downing, a businessman from Big Sky, has so far raised close to half a million dollars for his campaign. According to campaign finance reports Downing loaned more than half of that money to his campaign himself. Downing recently published a nearly two and half minute video on youtube promoting his election bid.
