Around the time the state capitol in Helena locked up for the night last Thursday, the regulars at Cedar Park Lanes in Anaconda started pouring a few beers and lacing up for league bowling.

As I walked into the 12-lane bowling alley the TVs were tuned to Thursday night football and playoff baseball: Game One of the ALDS, Red Sox and Indians. A birthday party for a kid was being thrown on the far side of the room.

It’s close to a month before Election Day, and I showed up to ask whoever was there if, and how, they will cast their vote.

Gov. Steve Bullock and Greg Gianforte hold their final debate, as well as release new ads in the gubernatorial race. Congressman Ryan Zinke speaks out about a recently released Donald Trump video. Capitol reporter Corin Cates-Carney sits in for Sally Mauk, and is joined by Rob Saldin and Chuck Johnson on this episode of "Campaign Beat."
