Fundraising Already Under Way for Montana’s Supreme Court Race

Following a contentious Supreme Court election in 2014, Montana is already seeing fundraising for its primary and general Supreme Court elections this year.  That fundraising started in 2015, according to The Bozeman Daily Chronicle.  Describing his campaign donors as being across the political spectrum, one candidate said, “With the increasing politicization of these races in the last couple of cycles it’s important to go out and get diverse support,” according to the report.

Montana’s 2014 judicial election was highlighted in Justice at Stake’s recent report on judicial politics, Bankrolling the Bench. The state saw record-breaking spending as national groups including the Republican State Leadership Committee and Americans for Prosperity poured nearly $550,000 into the race.
