HELENA, Montana: The Montana Republican Party exceeded even their own expectations, Tuesday, when taking an additional 17 seats in the state's House of Representatives. Republicans now control 67 or the 100 seat, ending the 50-50 deadlock that had persisted for the previous two years.[1]

The GOP also gained five seats in the Montana State Senate, where they now control 32 of the 50 seats. State, and out-of-state, Republicans had launched a tireless campaign designed to link Montana Democrats to the policies of the national Party[1].
