Walsh Appointed to Replace Baucus

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D) appointed Lt. Gov. John Walsh (D) to be the next senator from Montana, Roll Call reports.

Walsh will replace Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT), who is leaving the Senate early after being confirmed as ambassador to China.

"Walsh was already running for the seat, but he'll now run as the incumbent senator. That change could provide some inherent advantages in his quest to hold one of the party's most vulnerable seats."
