BILLINGS — Republican gubernatorial candidate Rep. Greg Gianforte reported income of $184 million and paid $30.5 million in taxes over a 10-year period ending in 2018, according to tax returns released by his campaign Wednesday.
Gianforte, one of the richest members of Congress, faces Democratic Lt. Gov. Mike Cooney in the November election to succeed Gov. Steve Bullock.
The former technology executive from Bozeman spent more than $5 million of his own money in a failed bid for governor in 2016 and has reported loaning just over $1.5 million to his 2020 campaign.
Spokesman Travis Hall said Gianforte and running mate Kristen Juras were releasing details from their tax returns to set an example of openness and transparency.
The campaign released portions of their state and federal returns from 2009-2018 for Gianforte and 2010-2019 for Juras.
