Montana can no longer be considered a true red state. Montana Democrats are far right of their Western Washington brethren. However, the Democratic Party controls the following offices:

Both U.S. Senate seats,
Lieutenant Governor,
State Auditor,
Superintendent of Public Instruction, and
A majority of seats in the state Senate.

Been saying it for months.

I'm registered in Montana. I sent in my absentee ballot a few days ago. There's at least one for Obama. My parents, in a small town, say there's no chance in hell he's actually going to make it. My dad insists it's because they're scared of black people.

the "large undecided" number they cite is comprised of Paultards. otherwise Obama wouldn't have a shot.

As of a week and a half ago, David Plouffe considered Montana amongst the battleground states (it was not Lean McCain or Strong McCain). I thought that was pretty amazing...

Montanans are good people. They like to be left alone, but they're not racist shitheads for the most part.

Amusingly, far northeastern Montana, Plentywood, Sheridan County, was a hotbed of radical socialism in the 1920s. You'd have trouble finding a more conservative area in the country today -- Western conservatism, not Mississippi-style.

I know Montana will go Obama's way. I just know it.

I've been saying it for months too, Fnarf, and I really think it's going to happen. The Republicans have taken Montana for granted and that's a mistake. McCain's never been here, and they were going to send Cheney for some fundraiser or something but he CANCELED. But the Democrats, on the other hand... Obama's been here like four times and each of the Clintons have been here. Politics is pretty local here, and personal attention like that means a lot. It's been pretty exciting to be in Montana.

All of us from Montana or parts north have been saying this for over a year now.

Woo Hoo!

I'm from MT and sent in my ballot a couple weeks ago. Obama had a HUGE turnout in Missoula this spring (I was there- he was amazing!). I really hope he can do it, but there are a lot of very conservative people there... but I'm doing my part!
