After denouncing one of its candidates last week, the Montana Green Party has received commitment statements from five remaining candidates running for congressional and state legislative seats in the 2018 elections. 

The party issued a statement denouncing John Gibney last Friday after he refused to apologize for what they described as "bigoted" comments made during a 2016 anti-immigration rally in Missoula.

Sally Mauk, Chuck Johnson and Rob Saldin discuss The Green Party's possible role as election spoiler; dissect the new campaign ads; and weigh in on press censorship in the Flathead, Sheriff Clarke's urgent call to anger, and Joe Biden's lament of the degradation of the Oval office. Listen in now on "Campaign Beat."

For the first time in more than a decade, Green Party candidates will appear on Montana’s ballots for Congress this fall. 

When the state’s candidate filing deadline passed at five o'clock this evening, three Green Party candidates joined the crowded field of Democrats, Republicans and Libertarians seeking Montana seats in the U.S. House and Senate.

Beaver Creek Project Selected Alternative-North
Flathead National Forest

Environmental conservation groups are suing to block a plan to log, thin, and prescription-burn about 2,900 acres in the Flathead National Forest. The groups say it violates federal laws.

The Beaver Creek Project borders Lindbergh Lake and the Mission Mountain Wilderness. Rich Kehr, the Flathead Forest’s Swan Lake District Ranger, says the biggest driver in the project is wildfire concerns.
