Former state Sen. Lynda Moss says she's dropping out of Montana's U.S. House race. Moss' exit leaves four candidates for the Democratic nomination in the June 5 primary election. The winner will take on Republican U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte in the November election.

"Doc" Melcher. Learn more on this episode of "Campaign Beat," with Sally Mauk, Chuck Johnson and Rob Saldin.
