Welcomes Chick-fil-A to Montana, despite anti-LGBTQ views
"Politicians in some states may think it's okay to discriminate against others based on their religious views, but that's not how we do things in Montana," wrote Fox. He referenced recent controversies following accusations that the chain's
foundation had donated to charities espousing anti-LGBTQ views. He made sure to note that beef will likely always be "king" in Montana, despite his call for more Chick-fil-A restaurants in the state.

No safe haven for neo-Nazi white nationalists
Top Montana lawmakers warned neo-Nazis they would find "no safe haven" for a rally that could include guns planned for next month in a mountain town where white nationalists have threatened Jewish residents.
The lawmakers include both Democrats and
U.S. Rep. Ryan Zinke, recently picked by Republican President-elect Donald Trump to be interior secretary. "We say to those few who seek to publicize anti-Semitic views that they shall find no safe haven here," Zinke wrote in an open letter also signed
by Gov. Steve Bullock (D); U.S. Sens. Steve Daines (R), and Jon Tester (D); and Attorney General Tim Fox (R).
Neo-Nazis plan to march in January in the mountain ski town of Whitefish in Montana's remote and rugged northwestern reaches. The march is
to support the mother of white nationalist leader Richard Spencer. Sherry Spencer is facing pressure from community members to sell a building she owns in Whitefish because of its ties to her son and to disavow her son's beliefs.
