I think we missed this one in all of the hoopla. Democrat Brian Schweitzer has been reelected governor of Montana as expected. Schweitzer has become a darling of the national media, but has stayed popular back home too. His speech before the Democratic National Convention this year really got people talking about his potential as a national candidate.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
