With Montana’s June primary election now less than four months away, voters can expect things to heat up on the campaign trail.
Case in point: Montana’s race for governor, where incumbent Democrat Steve Bullock is term-limited after eight years in office.
Two Democrats are vying for their party’s nomination: Lt. Gov Mike Cooney and newcomer Whitney Williams, and both are locked in a tight race when it comes to fund raising.
Over the last three months of 2019, the Williams campaign raised $439,000 with donations from 29 states. Nearly three-fourths of her total was from outside Montana, including $107,000 from California and $87,000 from Washington state donors. Her Montana donations totaled $104,000.
