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.

    Remains of the Data

    Gender Equality in the US House: A State-by State Quarter-Century Report Card (1989-2014)

    A study of 5,325 congressional elections finds the number of female U.S. Representatives has more than tripled over the last 25 years, but the rate at which women are elected to the chamber still varies greatly between the states.

    Mark Dayton is one of just three Minnesotans ever elected to three different statewide offices. Dayton, of course, had previously served as State Auditor (1991-1995) and U.S. Senator (2001-2007) before winning the governorship in 2010. At that time, he joined Republicans Edward Thye and J.A.A. Burnquist on this very short list. Burnquist was elected lieutenant governor in 1914 but then became governor after the death of Democrat Winfield Hammond in 1915. He then won the gubernatorial elections of 1916 and 1918 and eight terms as attorney general two decades later (1939-1955). Thye was similarly first elected lieutenant governor of the Gopher State and became governor after the resignation of fellow GOPer Harold Stasson in 1943. Thye won one additional full term as governor in 1944 and then two terms to the U.S. Senate (1947-1959). Twenty Minnesotans have been elected to two different statewide offices.

    With retirement announcements this year by veteran U.S. Representatives such as 30-term Democrat John Dingell of Michigan, 20-term Democrat George Miller of California, and 18-term Republican Tom Petri of Wisconsin, it is no surprise that retirees from the 113th Congress are one of the most experienced cohorts in recent decades. Overall, these 24 exiting members of the House have served an average of 11.0 terms - the second longest tenure among retirees across the last 18 cycles since 1980. Only the U.S. Representatives retiring in 2006 had more experience, averaging 11.9 terms. (In that cycle, 10 of the 11 retiring members served at least 10 terms, with GOPer Bill Jenkins of Tennessee the lone exception at just five). Even without the aforementioned Dingell, the average length of service in the chamber of the remaining 23 retirees in 2014 is 10.2 terms - which would still be the third highest since 1980 behind the 2006 and 2012 (10.5 terms) cycles.
