Good news from Montana

Featured image Montana is a Red State, and there will be no good excuse if Republican Denny Rehberg (a Power Line Pick Six candidate) does not defeat liberal Democrat Jon Tester this year.

Politics Watch: Notes from Montana

Featured image BOZEMAN, Montana—My weekend with my pals at PERC, the Property and Environment Research Center, is almost over.  I managed to get in a quick afternoon hike through the smoke of nearby forest fires—the smoke may explain why this nearby iPhone photo is so washed out.  I also got to pick the brain of John Batchelor of the John Batchelor radio show for tips for the next time I sub for »

A tale of two Testers

Featured image Democrat Jon Tester is campaigning hard to hold onto his Montana Senate seat in the face of a strong challenge by Rep. Denny Rehberg. But Tester seems to be campaigning harder against President Obama than against Rehberg. Below, via Eliana Johnson at NRO, is a Tester ad that seeks to portray the candidate as an obstacle to the Obama administration. But Tester was no obstacle to Obama’s leftist agenda when »
