A Montana leftist attacked Rep. Denny Rehberg’s wife Jan after a debate this week in Big Sky, Montana.
The Daily Caller reported:

It’s all fun and games until somebody gets slugged with a campaign sign — at least in Montana, where following the first U.S. Senate campaign debate this cycle, a Democratic activist hit one candidate’s wife with a rolled up sign.

The debate at Buck’s T-4 in Big Sky, Mont., between Democratic incumbent Jon Tester, Republican challenger Montana Rep. Denny Rehberg and Libertarian Dan Cox reportedly focused on the election issues of the day: jobs, the economy and health care.

The real fireworks, however, took place after the event when an attendee got into a physical altercation with Jan Rehberg, the Republican challenger’s wife.

According to a Rehberg campaign staffer who witnessed the altercation, a female Tester supporter in her late thirties attempted to push her way into a group that included the congressman, who was entertaining questions from reporters, and his wife, daughter Katie and staff.

After exchanging words with Jan Rehberg, she began hitting the candidate’s wife with a rolled up Tester sign.

Managing partner of the Buck T-4, David O’Connor, attended the event and threw the alleged sign-wielding woman, whom he identified as a local environmental activist, off the premises an hour later along with two of her cohorts — who he said were heckling Rehberg during the event.

After the debate Bozeman Democrat Rachel Vaughn also attacked a reporter in the parking lot.
