Tester Says Senate Seat Still Obtainable for Democrats

Posted: Updated:

U.S. Sen. Jon Tester says the Democratic party can win the senate seat being vacated by Max Baucus, but it's going to take a lot more work, now that former Gov. Brian Schweitzer isn't running. Tester said Friday that Schweitzer was the Democrats' best chance of winning the 2014 election and he probably could have won without Tester's help. But Tester says there are potential candidates in the state legislature, administration and the private sector who can win if they're willing to do the work. Schweitzer announced last Saturday that he would not run next year, saying he didn't want to leave Montana for Washington, D.C. His announcement prompted speculation.The former governor was discouraged by party infighting. Tester says he and his staff did nothing to inhibit Schweitzer from running.
