Washington Examiner: Republican Steve Daines wins Montana Senate race

In a pickup for the GOP, Republican Rep. Steve Daines is Montana’s new senator.

Daines won against Democrat challenger Amanda Curtis, a state representative for Butte, according to the Associated Press.

Daines’ win represents the fourth Senate pickup for Republicans in the 2014 Senate elections.

The seat was vacated by Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, who resigned in February to become U.S. ambassador to China.

The race garnered attention after Democratic Sen. John Walsh dropped his re-election bid in August amid allegations that he plagiarized a research paper while attending the Army War College.
