Montana GOP: Any Candidates Out There?

The New York Times reports what seems quite clear: they're aren't too many Republicans eager to challenge Max Baucus:

Nonetheless, for a conservative-leaning and usually Republican-voting state that in 2004 gave 59 percent of its votes to President Bush, Republicans appear to be struggling to find a viable candidate to challenge veteran Democratic Sen. Max Baucus.

Of course, a cynic might be tempted to ask why they'd bother.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
