In the state of Montana, the Republicans almost wiped out the Democrats in statewide races. It was a bloodbath.
It all started with Democrat U.S. House candidate Denise Juneau losing to incumbent Republican Ryan Zinke. I never actually thought that race would be close. It wasn’t.
There are still votes to be counted because for some reason election after election it seems the Montana election officials have problems election night counting the votes. I checked some national maps at 6:30 a.m. and states like Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Idaho, and Utah all had 99% of their votes counted. Montana had 90% at that time (78% of precincts reporting).

Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!
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 Linda’s conspiracy theory, deleting emails, Rick Perry, The Western Word picks the winning candidates (so far), and much more!
Politics is the art of choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable. – John Kenneth Galbraith
