Schweitzer Reaches Out to Team Baucus

Brian Schweitzer (D) won a second term as Montana governor in 2008 "with nearly two-thirds of the vote, and he remained popular as he moved out of the governor's mansion in January. But his style and perceived not-a-team-player attitude after eight years in Helena has rubbed numerous people in both parties the wrong way," Roll Call reports.

"That includes -- but is hardly limited to -- the inner circle of retiring Democratic Sen. Max Baucus. According to several Montana Democrats -- who all hope he runs and wins -- Schweitzer's campaign planning has included extending olive branches to a Baucus political apparatus he'll likely need."
