Sally Mauk, Chuck Johnson and Rob Saldin unpack how Montana candidates — including the "least Trumpy" Republican — reacted to the State of the Union, parse the latest campaign finance reports, and talk town hall pledges and bikes in wilderness, on this episode of "Campaign Beat."

Today on "Campaign Beat" we talk about Senator Tester's risky vote against ending the government shutdown; the healthy fundraising figures from Rosendale and Fagg; the political impact of the Bundy anti-fed movement in Montana; and a new twist on a classic Montana campaign photo.

Listen in now on "Campaign Beat."

Today on Campaign Beat: outside consultants coming to Montana to work on campaigns; Grant Kier's new Facebook ad; the impact of the women's marches; Corey Stapleton criticizes the media; and Joe Biden's upcoming Montana visit.
