Dems Look To Meddle in Montana’s GOP Senate Primary

Democrats are using a new super PAC to meddle in the Montana GOP Senate primary and stop former Navy SEAL Tim Sheehy from emerging as the nominee, campaign finance disclosures suggest.

The new group, Last Best Place PAC, registered with the Federal Election Commission last week and placed a six-figure ad buy attacking Sheehy’s business career, describing it as unethical. The registration form and ad buy include two telltale signs that national Democrats are behind the effort. The PAC’s registration form lists Amalgamated Bank—which has long worked with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.)—as its depository, and the group used a prominent left-wing media firm, Virginia-based Old Town Media, to purchase the advertisement.
