Schweitzer Not Running for Senate in Montana

Former Montana governor and Democrat Brian Schweitzer will not run for the open Senate seat next year, Politico reports:
Baucus's retirement offers an opportunity for Republicans to gain a Senate seat in a conservative state that votes just as often for Democrats as it does for the GOP. Schweitzer was the biggest threat to this opportunity, but with the popular two-term governor out of the race, Republicans' chances of winning in Montana next year--and potentially gaining control of the Senate--just got a little better.
