Schweitzer Updates Campaign Site as Senate Speculation Swirls
Last edited Sun Apr 28, 2013, 12:47 AM - Edit history (2)
Former Montana governor Brian Schweitzer's (D) campaign website has been updated, a sign that he might be moving towards a Senate run in Montana.
Schweitzer's website, brianschweitzer.com, now features a landing page asking visitors to sign up, with a box to check saying "I want to volunteer." The site was also updated with a biography of the former governor, describing him as "From Montana, for Montana."
Those are changes from just a few days ago, before Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) announced his plans to retire rather than seek reelection in 2014.
A cached version of Schweitzer's website from last week shows the biography was on a separate tab and the "sign up" section had no options for volunteers. The "home" section of the old website, which had news stories about the former governor's activities, has been removed.The website update is a sign that he may be leaning towards a run — or at least looking to stir interest as he considers one.

1. He would be a real breath of fresh air in the stuffy Senate
He's always said he hates Washington DC, so I wonder if he's ready to make the supreme sacrifice and go there for a term or two.
I sincerely hope he is. We need him.
