State Legislative Election Results

Montana House of Representatives2014 Montana State Senate Elections
Elections for the office of Montana House of Representatives will take place in 2014. A primary election took place June 3, 2014, and a general election will take place on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was March 10, 2014; minor party and independent candidates had until June 2, 2014, to file.

Montana, like many other states, has seen a divide between two groups of the Republican caucus in the State Legislature. Most pronounced in the State Senate, moderate Republicans, calling themselves "Responsible Republicans," regularly split from conservative leadership to side with Democrats. Most notably, the moderate Republicans sided with the Democratic minority on key issues such as campaign spending law changes, school funding legislation and state employee pension reform.[1]

Leaders on the conservative end of the Republican Party are recruiting candidates to present primary challenges to moderate Republicans. Many districts lean heavily Republican, meaning the battle over ideas takes place in the primary election rather than the general election.[1] Montana had just three Senate districts and seven House districts where the margin of victory 5 percent or less in the general election.[2][3]

Incumbents retiring

A total of 30 incumbents are not running for re-election in 2014. Those incumbents are:
