3:29 p.m. The Repubican caucuses end in Montana at 11:00 p.m. CST. Republicans will allocate all 25 of its convention delegates today, by the vote of County Republican Party leaders.

7:20 p.m. Republican (5% reporting)
Romney = 36%
McCain = 30%
Paul = 23%
Huckabee = 11%

7:20 p.m. Republican (13% reporting)
McCain = 33%
Romney = 31%
Paul = 19%
Huckabee = 17%

9:05 p.m. Republican (38% reporting)
Romney = 34%
McCain = 33%
Huckabee = 19%
Paul = 14%

This is a must-win state for Romney in order to keep up with Huckabee in the state victory count of the evening. Should Huckabee win more states than Romney, the tables will have turned and Huckabee will be calling for Romney to get out of the race.

10:08 p.m. Fox News has called the state of Montana for Mitt Romney - his 4th victory of the evening.

11:00 p.m. Republican (100% reporting). The final numbers for the Montana GOP Caucus:
Romney = 38%
Paul = 25%
McCain = 22%
Huckabee = 15%

Romney is making a clean sweep of the Western states: victorious in North Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Montana, and Colorado thus far. Montana was Ron Paul's best performance in any Super Tuesday state, earning his only 2nd place.

    Mary Burke: English First?

    While multiculturalism and bilingualism are increasingly en vogue in some quarters as the world seemingly becomes a smaller place, one very high profile 2014 Democratic candidate does not shy away from the fact that she only speaks one language: English. In an attempt to highlight her private sector credentials working for Trek Bicycle, Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial nominee Mary Burke boasts on her campaign bio page how she made great strides in international business dealings...while only speaking English: "Despite not speaking a single foreign language, she established sales and distribution operations in seven countries over just three years." Note: According to 2010 Census data, nearly half a million Wisconsinites over five years old speak a language other than English at home, or 8.7 percent, while 4.6 percent of Badger State residents do not speak English at all.


    Does My Key Still Work?

    Much has been made about Charlie Crist's political transformation from Republican to independent to Democrat en route to winning the Florida GOP and Democratic gubernatorial nominations over a span of eight years. Party-switching aside, Crist is also vying to become just the second Florida governor to serve two interrupted terms. Democrat William Bloxham was the first - serving four year terms from 1881 to 1885 and then 1897 to 1901. Florida did not permit governors serving consecutive terms for most of its 123 years prior to changes made in its 1968 constitution. Since then four have done so: Democrats Reubin Askew, Bob Graham, and Lawton Chiles and Republican Jeb Bush.
