Republicans are hoping to upgrade their Senate candidate pool, the members of which are vying for the opportunity of challenging two-term Sen. Jon Tester (D), as he prepares to seek re-election.

While he cannot say anything overtly political while still in his judicial post, most political observers believe he will announce his Senate candidacy as soon as he officially steps down.
