Montana Leans to McCain; Obama Battles for Big Sky

Montana's three electoral votes lean in Sen. John McCain's favor but Sen. Barack Obama won't give up Big Sky Country without a fight. In the last ten presidential elections, Montana has show it's left leanings only once: in 1992, when it voted for then-Gov. Bill Clinton over President George Bush. McCain's story, military service and ties to the Western regions of the country will likely resonate with Montana conservatives but Obama's efforts in the state have been consistent.
