In Montana, Hill Outraises Bullock Again

Former Rep. Rick Hill, the GOP nominee in the Montana governor's contest, outraised Democratic nominee Steve Bullock during the last reporting period -- the second month in a row that Hill has raised more money than his opponent.

Hill raised $229,000 to Bullock's $183,000 during the reporting period running from August 6 to September 5, according to the Billings Gazette.

It's a less dramatic difference than the previous month, during which Hill brought in more than twice the cash Bullock did ($207,000 to the Democrat's $91,000). And after a primary in which Hill had to beat back a big field of competitors and Bullock had no credible opposition, Bullock still maintains his cash on hand advantage: He reported $782,000 left in his campaign coffers to Hill's $436,000.

Montana, where President Obama is unpopular, is a tough climate for a Democrat to run in -- but with no recent polling in the race it's unclear how tight the gubernatorial contest is at this point.
