HELENA – Democratic U.S. House candidate Kathleen Williams says she received a fundraising boost after her primary win, raising $480,000 from the June 5 election through the end of the month.

But the man she’s trying to beat, incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte, is also reporting a strong fundraising period.

Gianforte said Thursday that he collected more than $822,000 for the three-month reporting period from April 1 through June 30, compared with Williams’ $581,000 total for the quarter.

Williams won a five-way primary election that included two male candidates who raised more money than she did.

Now she’s taking on another well-funded incumbent in Gianforte, who reports having $1.3 million in the bank at the beginning of July.

Williams had $462,000 cash on hand at the beginning of the month.
