Hill Doubles Bullock's Haul in Montana

Former Rep. Rick Hill, the Republican nominee in Montana's gubernatorial race, raised more than twice as much money as Democratic nominee Steve Bullock in the most recent reporting period.

Hill brought in $207,000 in the period, which ran from July 6 to August 5, while Bullock raised $91,000, according to the Missoulian.

Bullock still has a large cash on hand advantage due to having only token primary opposition while Hill had to vanquish a crowded field of Republican contenders in the June 5 primary. Bullock had $830,000 in the bank compared to Hill's $324,000.

In the previous reporting period, June 21 through July 5, Hill had slightly outraised Bullock: $54,000 to Bullock's $52,000.

Bullock, the state's Attorney General, is considered a strong Democratic recruit, but momentum may be shifting to Hill now that the primary is over. With President Obama at the top of the ticket, Republican-leading Montana should be an uphill climb for Democratic candidates.
