ActBlue is coming West and interesting races
An important follow up on a recent post. Actblue, the website that lets you contribute directly to your favorite candidate decided to come down to the state level, and Montana is one of the states that was voted for their initial effort. I would have liked to see more Western states, but with the important races in Montana next year, I can't complain.
Also, speaking of important races, Swing State Project recently had a discussion about what races people were paying closest attention to. A lot of Virginia gubernatorial people, and I was surprised by how many folks were enthralled with Northeast races. There were though, some interesting races out West, including Rep. Pombo (R CA-11), the Oregon gubernatorial race, and Jay Fawcett in the CO-4.
Your Personal Note:
What are the important races in Montana this year - besides the federal ones?

Kari, Jay Fawcett is in CO-05. It's a difficult district but an excellent candidate.
CO-04 is where Marilyn Musgrave currently sits and is being challenged by Angie Paccione. This is quite likely a very competitive race.

Thanks, PDT. I know.
Federal races are already covered by ActBlue. Emmett's post was about ActBlue getting into state races - and highlighted "important races in Montana next year".
Besides Tester/Morrison vs. Burns (which is a federal race), what are the tough state races?

At the state level, we've got the State House, State Senate, and Public Service Commission all quite literally hanging in the balance.
The Senate and House will both be close fights.
The PSC we need to win 2 races out of 2 to maintain control.
