Three of Montana's biggest local newspapers — the Missoulian, the Billings Gazette and Helena Independent Record — have all rescinded their endorsements of Greg Gianforte, the state's GOP candidate running for Congress, after he allegedly bodyslammed a reporter Wednesday, the night before Montana's special election. Gianforte was charged with misdemeanor assault later that night, and is due to appear in court next month.
