A Big Break for the GOP in Montana
Check it out:
Some good Saturday news for the GOP. Per USA Today:
HELENA, Mont. (AP) – Popular former Gov. Brian Schweitzer says he will not run for Montana’s open U.S. Senate seat in 2014.
The Democrat tells The Associated Press on Saturday he doesn’t want to leave Montana and go to Washington, D.C.
Schweitzer says he felt compelled to consider the race because many in his party said they needed him to run.
He was considered the best chance Democrats have to hold onto the seat being vacated by U.S. Sen. Max Baucus next year.
That is exactly what Brian Schweitzer was. When Max Baucus announced his retirement, many concluded that the Democrats had dodged a bullet, and they sought to replace Baucus, who they had thought likely to lose, with Schweitzer, who they thought likely to win.
