As reported yesterday, Gov. Steve Bullock (D) wasted no time in scheduling May 25th as the replacement congressional election date for Interior Secretary and now former Montana at-large Congressman Ryan Zinke. Democrats quickly announced that their nominating convention will take place already this Sunday, March 5th. Now, Republicans are following suit. They will caucus on Monday, March 6th, in order to choose their nominee. The favorites going into each convention: Democratic state Rep. and former US Senate nominee Amanda Curtis over seven other candidates, and Republican businessman and 2016 gubernatorial nominee Greg Gianforte against eight GOP opponents.
