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.

    Plurality-Winning Governors Elected At Century-Long High Water Mark

    The rate of gubernatorial candidates elected without the support of a majority of voters is at its highest level since the 1910s.

    Political Crumbs

    Seeing Red

    Congressman Nick Rahall's failed bid for a 20th term in West Virginia this cycle, combined with a narrow loss by Nick Casey to Alex Mooney in Shelley Moore Capito's open seat, means that West Virginia Democrats will be shut out of the state's U.S. House delegation for the first time in over 90 years. The Republican sweep by two-term incumbent David McKinley in the 1st CD, Mooney in the 2nd, and Evan Jenkins over Rahall in the 3rd marks the first time the GOP has held all seats in the chamber from West Virginia since the Election of 1920. During the 67th Congress (1921-1923) all six seats from the state were controlled by the GOP. Since the Election of 1922, Democrats have won 76 percent of all U.S. House elections in the Mountain State - capturing 172 seats compared to 54 for the GOP.


    Home Field Advantage?

    When the 114th Congress convenes in a few days, Maine will be represented by one home-grown U.S. Representative: Waterville-born Republican Bruce Poliquin. With the departure of Millinocket-born Mike Michaud, who launched a failed gubernatorial bid, the Pine Tree State was poised to send a House delegation to D.C. without any Maine-born members for the first time since 1821. Three-term U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree (born in Minnesota) coasted to reelection as expected, however Poliquin edged Kentucky-born Emily Cain by 5.3 points to keep the streak alive. Since 1876, a total of 208 of the 222 candidates elected to the nation's lower legislative chamber from the state have been born in Maine, or 94 percent.
