Conrad Burns (R)

Republican Conrad Burns is up for re-election. He had some opposition in the Republican Party primary, but easily won re-nomination with 75% of the vote. Montana State Senate President Jon Tester won the Democratic primary. Democrats can only hope Burns is seen as damaged merchandise in the November election.

Montana presidential election results


Montana has been trending blue, and Burns might just get caught up in it. A number of minor scandals have surfaced, especially involving Jack Abramoff of Tom Delay fame. A recent poll had Burn's relect number pegged at 36%. Morrison declared for the race in April, and Tester is also in the running. It is expected that if both Morrison and Tester run it will be a very competitive democratic primary.

Posted on on January 12, 2006:

A new Rasmussen Reports poll shows the barrage of bad publicity about Conrad Burns' close ties to Abramoff have taken a major toll. His once double-digit lead over the two leading Democrats is gone. Burns and liberal State Senate President Jon Tester (D) are tied at 45% apiece. Burns leads State Auditor John Morrison (D) by a narrow 46% to 43% vote. Posted by Ron Gunzburger - 01.12.06 [1]

Morrison has been badly damaged by reports that he failed to enforce a securities fraud settlement with Venue Tech, because he had an affair with the wife of Venue Tech's president. (DailyKos story) Morrison was also a strong supporter of the Defense of Marriage Amendment.
