MT-Sen: Tester Edges Morrison in Billings

Posted by James L.

From the Tester Time blog:

9:05 p.m. MT
Results from Yellowstone County:
Tester 2349, Morrison 2207

This is huge. Recall what Matt Singer wrote about Billings, the population capital of Yellowstone County yesterday:

he Ohio of Montana, Billings is the swing city that often decides the winner of the general election, but it's relatively low primary turnout and its swing status makes it slightly less important in the primary election. County Commissioner Bill Kennedy, the only D on the Commission, is Morrison's treasurer (reportedly, he's got his eye on the Auditor's office is Morrison somehow pulls this thing off). Kennedy and Morrison have been working this town hard and it's been an admitted weak spot for Tester's campaign.

This is Tester at his weakest, folks. He's going to win this thing.

If this all holds up, it'll be a perfect night in MT. I like the way Senator Tester sounds!
