Baucus won with 73% of the vote less that a year ago in a red state.
And, he's been there over 30 years.
Imagine the roots you grow in Washington for 30 years.

I don't think he's worried about too much tonight.


:grr: :banghead:

7. Read the US Constitution. You will discover that there is no provision to impeach
US Senators, US Congressman, or the President of the US.

So Montanans can't impeach a US Senator.

Do a little research. You will find that no US Congressman or US Senator has ever been impeached by popular vote, because that would be against the US constitution.

Far better would be to ask your Senator to introduce a resolution to impeach him. The US Senate can do it, but the people of a state can't do it.

2. And Tester took out Burns
Baucus made a huge mistake. I think someone is going to give him a run for his money. I don't know who, but someone will.

3. Apparently, Montana got a choice between a Republican and another
Republican. It should explain the red to you.

5. And there are more people in my County than in his state, and he was given such "power".

6. Small State + DINO + Time + Seniority Structure of Sentate = Power.

8. He's worried. But he is counting on voters having short memories.
