Guardian journalist Ben Jacobs was covering an event in Bozeman and tweeted the encounter at about 7 p.m. ET.
The Montana special election was for the seat vacated when former GOP Rep. Ryan Zinke was named Interior Secretary by President Donald Trump. Witnesses of the altercation said Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck and threw him to the floor, where he continued to hit Jacobs.
But after he was declared the victor, Gianforte apologized for the attack.
"When you make a mistake, you have to own up to it", Gianforte said during his victory party.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday suggested that Gianforte's behavior was somewhat influenced by rough tactics exhibited by some of President Donald Trump's campaign supporters during rallies previous year.
