MT US Senate race could become more competitive than some think.

HELENA – Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Amanda Curtis has named her campaign manager and also picked up a key endorsement Thursday from a national left-leaning political action committee.

Democracy for America, the Vermont-based PAC founded by former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, endorsed Curtis in her five-day-old campaign against Republican Steve Daines for Montana’s U.S. Senate seat. Libertarian Roger Roots also is in the race.

Curtis “is precisely the new, progressive hero Montana Democrats need” to defeat Daines, said Jim Dean, chairman of Democracy for America.

Montana DFA members are delighted with this endorsement. My family and friends in-state are also delighted and will be working on her campaign.

I have already contributed to DFA's campaign for Curtis. For the link, see https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/dfacurtis/?refcode=CAC082114JD.5157

It will be an uphill battle, but Curtis is certainly up for it and, with help, I truly believe that she can do it. National Dems should not let this seat go to yet another RW GOPer.

1. If she can keep it close at all we should spend

Montana is dirt cheap to campaign in and all Senate seats count the same.

2. Exactly! And she is really a breath of fresh air ...

much more exciting than any tepid middle-ground Dem candidate.

The fact that there is also a Libertarian candidate could work to her advantage.

3. An interview in Science magazine!

I'm as excited as can be for her candidacy, I know I'm not alone.

Fingers are crossed that a social media based Internet sensation campaign can shake up Montana and surprise us all. I thinks she's got a chance.

Thanks for the DFA link. Off to contribute...
