Montana Supreme Court Candidates Relying Mostly On Self Funding

There’s a three-way race underway for a seat on the Montana Supreme Court. Each of the candidates are relying on self funding to get their 2020 campaigns off the ground.

Justice Laurie McKinnon, who lives in Helena, is running for reelection after announcing last year she would not seek a second eight-year term on the state high court.

According to most recent campaign finance reports due this week, McKinnon’s campaign funding is lagging behind two challengers starting off election year. A personal loan to the campaign of around $3,200 accounts for nearly all of McKinnon’s funds.
