Republicans, Democrats Pour Millions Into Battleground Montana Senate Race

Montana may have overwhelmingly supported President Donald Trump in 2016 but it's clear that this November, Democrats and Republicans see the state's Senate race as a possible win.

Both parties are already pouring millions into the contest between GOP incumbent Steve Daines and term-limited Democratic Governor Steve Bullock.

On Tuesday, it was reported that the Senate Leadership Fund—the main Republican super PAC—would be booking a massive $10.1 million advertising campaign in the state. The ads will start in September and run through Election Day, according to the Washington Examiner.

Their investment in Montana is more than the super PAC plans to spend in some other highly competitive Senate races. The group only booked $7.2 million in Maine for the fall to support Senator Susan Collins, who is seen as one of the most vulnerable GOP incumbents. They've also committed just $9.2 million to help Republican Senator Martha McSally against Democrat Mark Kelly, the best-funded candidate in the country.

2. I simpler terms...

...The GOP has semi-conceded Maine and Arizona. They are hoping to make a stand in Montana. Because if they lose the Senate seat, there is a chance they lose the electoral as well. Montana showing up blue on the major networks would be a major embarrassment. But so is Arizona...they don't want to add insult after injury.

3. I sent the Bullock campaign some money

All I’d heard is he was popular and a democrat that had a good chance. That was enough for me. Go Steve!

I’d really like to see Moscow Mitch voted out but I’d settle for the rethugs to lose their majority.
