In the wake of the Florida school shooting, we’re taking a look at reactions and statements on guns from Montana's politicians and candidates for elected office.

The campaign consultant who helped orchestrate the Democratic upset in Alabama’s special U.S. Senate election last year has signed on to help Montana congressional candidate John Heenan who’s running in a contested primary.


This week on "Campaign Beat" we cover candidate hairdos via a new Republican anti-Tester ad; talk about the moderate/progressive split on display at the Missoula Democratic House candidates forum; look at Governor Bullock's ongoing flirtation with running for POTUS; and discus Senate candidates James and Sarah Dean's odd disappearing act.
