A macho military man taunts a music teacher; and a lesson in "cultural condescension" from Hillary Clinton. Yep, new campaign ads are out. Sally Mauk, Chuck Johnson, and Rob Saldin examine those, and explain the signature-gathering  shenanigans surrounding the Green Party, and similar efforts in past elections. Listen in now on "Campaign Beat."

An environmental assessment released today from the U.S. Forest Service recommends a 20-year ban on new mining developments on public land in the Paradise Valley, just north of Yellowstone National Park.

The agency recommends withdrawing more than 30,000 acres from mining exploration.

The Four Republicans facing off in Montana’s June primary election met in a Missoula forum last night. Each pitched himself as the best candidate to unseat two-term Democratic Senator Jon Tester.
