Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D) leads Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) in a new Senate primary poll — and he wants to make sure everyone knows it.
There have long been rumblings that Schweitzer, a popular former governor who was term-limited out of office in 2012, wants to run. Baucus has not said whether or not he'll run again in 2014.
If the two Democrats do run, the primary will be one of the most closely watched in the country. It also has a good chance to be both bloody and expensive, hurting whoever does emerge from the primary's chances of winning the general election in the Republican-leaning state.
