Campaign Beat

Fridays 6:48 p.m., Sundays at 11:00 a.m.

"Campaign Beat," MTPR's weekly political analysis program is hosted by MTPR's Sally Mauk with UM Political Science Professor Rob Saldin and former Capitol Reporter Chuck Johnson. It airs Fridays between 6:30 and 7 p.m., with an encore broadcast Sundays 11 a.m.

Tester picks up votes in Trump country, and Montanans continue a long tradition of ticket-splitting. Governor Bullock has his hands full with another Republican-led Legislature, and this election stands out in many ways from previous Montana mid-terms. Sally Mauk, Chuck Johnson and Rob Saldin break it all down in this season's final installment of "Campaign Beat."

A fourth presidential visit to Montana continues a grudge President Trump has with Jon Tester. Libertarians have sometimes influenced the outcome of a Montana Senate race, but will they this year? Republican ads focus on immigration, while Democratic ads want to highlight health care. And the infamous body-slam keeps coming up in the House race. Sally, Chuck and Rob talk about what it all means for Tuesday's election, right now on "Campaign Beat."

Polls show undecided voters may tip the balance in Montana's House and Senate races; how two ballot issues are attracting a lot of outside money and attention; new ads range from ominous to humorous; and a national Republican group sends out a mailer with erroneous voter information. Listen in now on "Campaign Beat," MTPR's weekly political analysis program.

Sally Mauk, Chuck Johnson and Rob Saldin talk about President Trump's rally in Missoula and his contradictions and vendettas; the Senate race spending spree; the latest nasty ads; and the tightening House race between Greg Gianforte and Kathleen Williams. Listen in now on "Campaign Beat," MTPR's weekly political analysis program.

Sally Mauk: Welcome to 'Campaign Beat,' our weekly political analysis program. I'm Sally Mauk and I'm joined by University of Montana Political Science Professor Rob Saldin and veteran Capitol Reporter Chuck Johnson.
