Montana voters will play a role in deciding whether Hillary Clinton sews up the Democratic presidential nomination, and they are expected to rally behind presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.
The primary election Tuesday also will decide or confirm the party nominees for governor, U.S. House, four statewide offices, three Public Service Commission spots and a slate of legislative seats. Three of the seven state Supreme Court positions are up for election, though only one is contested.
An Associated Press count that includes unpledged superdelegates finds that Clinton needs 26 more delegates as of Monday to lock up the nomination over Bernie Sanders.
Sanders is scrapping for every vote. Last month, he became the first active presidential candidate to campaign in Montana. A week later, former President Bill Clinton spoke in Billings.
