Election 2012: Update 15


12:30 a.m. Franke Wilmer leading Tom Burnett in HD-66.

12:18 a.m. In the local races, Chuck Hunter, Liz Bangerter, Galen Hollenbaugh, Jenny Eck, and Christine Kaufman appear headed to victory. Steve Gibson is leading Joe Cohenour by two votes in HD 78.

12:02 a.m. Eve Byron is reporting that Andy Hunthausen will win re-election as Lewis and Clark County Commissioner.

12:01 a.m. Just as Obama’s speech came to an end, Michelle Bachmann feel behind in her House race. Maybe we can get rid of some of this insane partisanship that’s been tearing the country apart.

11:55 p.m. Have to love these two consecutive posts in the #mtpol Twitter feed:


11:50 p.m. If this Obama showed up at the first debate and every campaign event, there wouldn’t have been any doubt about this election at all.

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.
