Schweitzer Won’t Run For U.S. Senate Seat In Montana


Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D) on Thursday said he would not seek the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate seat representing Montana.

Sen. John Walsh (D-MT) announced on Thursday that he would drop out of the Senate race.

Walsh made the decision following a New York Times report that said the Senator plagiarized large portions of his master’s thesis.

The Montana Democratic Party has until Aug. 20 to choose a new Democratic nominee to run for the seat.
