BOZEMAN,Mont. (AP) — The wife and running mate of Republican governor candidate Greg Gianforte, as well as several other top GOP officials, were possibly exposed to the coronavirus after attending an event with the girlfriend of President Donald Trump's oldest son, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported.

Gianforte's wife, Susan, lieutenant governor candidate Kristen Juras, as well as Republican congressional candidate and state auditor Matt Rosendale and state auditor candidate Troy Downing, were at a Trump fundraising event July 1 in Gallatin County with Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., the newspaper reported.

Guilfoyle was diagnosed with the coronavirus on July 3, the New York Times reported.

Greg Gianforte, Montana's representative in the U.S. House, did not attend the event because Congress was in session, the Daily Chronicle reported.

On July 1, Juras posted a photo on her campaign Facebook page posing less than 6 feet away and without masks with Susan Gianforte, Donald Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle. In the photo’s caption, Juras wrote that the photo was taken the night before, on June 30, the newspaper reported.

“Since learning of their potential exposure, Greg, Susan, and Kristen have adhered to recommended guidelines. Out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of others, they will self-quarantine, be tested for COVID-19, and suspend in-person campaign events pending test results,” a Gianforte campaign spokesperson said.

Downing’s campaign manager Sam Loveridge confirmed Downing attended the event. Loveridge said in an email that neither Downing nor his staff were ever in “close proximity” with Guilfoyle.

“Out of an abundance of caution, Troy Downing will be tested as soon as possible and will avoid personal contact and all public functions until a negative test result can be confirmed,” Loveridge told the newspaper in an email.

Candidate Accused of Domestic Violence, Dropped Out Of Race, May Still Win GOP Nomination

Early voting results indicate that a man who dropped out of the primary election to represent the Congressional Second District after being arrested on Monday, Aug. 10, could win the nomination.

As of Wednesday, Aug. 12, morning, Republican Thomas Gilmer, who had dropped out of the race on Monday, was leading Justin Anderson by just a handful of votes:

Gilmer: 7,875

Anderson: 7,797

Gilmer, 29, of Madison, was arrested Monday, Aug. 10, and charged with first-degree unlawful restraint and second-degree strangulation, police said. 

The Connecticut GOP confirmed Aug. 11 that Gilmer had been arrested and dropped out of the race.

The winner of the primary race will face U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney, a Democrat, in the November election. It is not clear that, if Gilmer won, he would accept the nomination.

As of this morning, Aug. 12, almost all of the votes in the Aug. 11 primary had been counted, but tallies in the following communities had not yet come in: Andover, East Hampton, Hampton, Killingworth, Lyme, Madison, North Stonington, and Preston.
