Welcome to the big show to end the week – “Caught My Eye” (CME) – and the good news is that this is CME #300.

300 – Let that sink in just a moment. I can’t wait to read the congratulatory messages from the President, Senators, Representatives, Ambassadors, foreign leaders, and teenagers.

If you are a first-time visitor, CME is posted right here every Friday morning. This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.

Topics this week include Trump in Montana, Montana Political Donations, Montana Democrats & Accountability, Gianforte Welcomes Candidate, Gianforte’s problem, Daines is Learning, Memorial Day, and much more!
