  •  If that were the case (0+ / 0-)

    it conflicts badly with Rehberg ahead by only 4 or 5 points on a recent poll. Montana has a far more solid Dem vote than North Dakota, where Obama is losing fairly badly, but Heitkamp is pulling folks with open minds (downballot).

    •  It doesn't conflict so much. (0+ / 0-)

      Montana is the New Hampshire of the West-- its voters are fiercely independent with a strong libertarian streak, and willing to split their tickets based on candidates (or, at least, perceptions of candidates. But perception is everything in politics!) It is definitely conceivable that there will be a large enough number of Romney-Tester voters out there to put the senator with the flat-top over the top.

      (A side note: I've always thought Tester should use the Beatles' "Come Together" as his campaign theme song. The chorus of the song is a call for unity, which is always good for political campaigns, but the bonus is the first line of the song: "Here come ol' Flat Top, he come groovin' up slowly . . . ")

      29, chick, Jewish, solid progressive, NY-14 currently, FL-22 native, went to school in IL-01. Mitt Romney: the Kama Sutra candidate. There's no position he hasn't tried!
