Yeah, but these 2 would be the top recruits for the Republicans, and they have not made any move yet.

Schweitzer leads the 2 announced GOP candidates by double digits though ...

Racicot. Haven't heard that name in ten years. He was considered as having a great future ahead of him back in the day.

There's already been a draft Racicot movement; but he clearly hasn't done anything as of yet. He seems to be our only chance to flip this seat for 2014.

I suspect Racicot will never run, and if he does his favorables will go down as the race goes on.

I suspect Schweitzer would run an ad along the lines of "After my term, I stayed in Montana and helped with our businesses. Marc Racicot went to Washington and became a lobbyist. Who really cares for Montana?"

The same Racicot that declined cabinet spot for Bush.  Schweizer would still beat him but we will have to see.

Racicot has been too content with DC life to work in there, plus his lead would fall easily to Schweitzer's populist message.
Daines just accepted a position as the central-west regional director for the NRCC. He really doesn't sound interested right now.
As far as I'm concerned, these two are afterthoughts. But in the case Schweitzer actually opts out, I'm actually much more happy to hear that the candidates behind him can hold their own against Stapleton or Edmunds (especially Edmunds, he's a bit too conservative to win even in Montana). Low recog is probably a reason, but I'm hopeful.

Judging from his Wikipedia article, Stapleton sounds like quite the rising star (and Edmunds quite the kook). I do hope he wins, or at least pushes Schweitzer's margin of victory into the low single digits.

I've crawled his Facebook page, and you should be a little concerned with the fact that he's said the sequester doesn't cut far enough. But other than that and throwing around comparisons to the Soviet Union when Montanans want to expand welfare, haven't seen much.

Ironically the USSR was far less tolerant of welfare than the US.

Baucus' approval has dropped to 36/52 since his retirement announcement.

Bullock and Tester are both on favorable terms in MT, respectively at 49/26 and 48/43.
