Something I didn’t know about Montana, they pay for their schools via taxing coal, Obamao’s an enemy to coal power...
It never hurts to cover your bases. It’s not like radio ads in Montana are going to break the bank!
Hank has a pretty good gun collection and at one time and maybe still does his own gunsmith. My kind of guy.
Montana has been trending blue since 2004. Democratic Gov and both US Senators are Dems as well. The state senate is also controlled by liberals.
I think quite a few rich liberal environmental types have moved into the state - celebrities and such. It doesn’t take much in a state with such a small population to make a big difference. Also, it seems there is a lot of dependency on government there. The biggest employers are government - the post office, and especially the government schools.
Even in our local paper I can’t believe how many of the job want ads are for various government or quasi-government agencies. From all the jobs for counselors of various kinds, you would think that nobody in this country can live his life without a personal nanny provided by the state.
Montana in the 70s was Democratic. The mining unions in Montana keeps the state in the middle!!
A whole lot of very liberal Californian’s have moved to Montana... and Colorado, and Arizona, and New Mexico, and Utah and Nevada... they are everywhere and bringing their liberal high tax votes with them.
