Court Decision Puts Hill Campaign at Standstill in Montana

The Gazette:

"We are effectively dark on radio and television right now," (Hill's campaign manager) Brock Lowrance testified in District Court. Asked about the decision's impact as the Nov. 6 election approaches, Lowrance said, "You're not out there the final week. It's a critical time." However, the Hill campaign has received $166,000 -- a $100,000 loan from Hill and $66,000 in donations -- since the temporary order went into effect and expects to begin advertising again by Tuesday at the latest, he said. State District Judge Kathy Seeley of Helena heard arguments Monday but did not rule immediately. Seeley told Hill's attorney that she was not prepared at that time to dismiss the Bullock campaign.

Whether Hill can spend the money could make a huge difference in the final week of a close race.
