Montana Voters Give GOP Strong Majority In Statehouse

The red wave in Montana dealt a crushing blow to state Democrats.

In addition to sweeping all of the statewide offices from Governor to State Auditor, Republicans won a strong majority in both chambers of the Montana legislature.

In the House, Republicans picked up 9 seats, giving them a 67 to 33 majority there.

The GOP gained one seat in the Senate, growing their majority – 31 R’s, 19 D’s.

It’s hard to imagine a bleaker scenario for Montana Democrats, who didn’t pick up a single seat in the statehouse and lost every statewide race in the 2020 election.

It will be interesting to see if state Democratic Party leaders are able to develop a workable plan for rising from the ashes of this disaster and what changes in messaging or tactics for Dems that plan holds.
