State Legislative Election Results

Montana House of Representatives2014 Montana State Senate Elections
Elections for the office of Montana House of Representatives took place in 2014. A primary election took place on June 3, 2014, and a general election took 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, saw 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 recruited candidates to present primary challenges to moderate Republicans. Many districts lean heavily Republican, meaning the battle over ideas took 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 was 5 percent or less in the general election.[2][3]

Following the general election, there was no change to the majority control of the Montana House of Representatives. The Democratic Party chipped away at the Republican Party's hold over the chamber, by increasing the Democratic seats from 39 to 41. Despite the loss of the two seats, the Republicans maintain their majority control of the chamber, holding 59 seats (down from 61).
