The 2006 U.S. Senate Election for the state of Montana was held November 7, 2006. The filing deadline was March 23; the primary was held on June 6. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ... November 7 is the 311th day of the year (312th in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar, with 54 days remaining. ... 2006 (MMVI) is a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


After a very close election, on November 9, incumbent Conrad Burns conceded defeat.[1] Democrat Jon Tester will represent Montana in the United States Senate from January 3, 2007 to January 3, 2013. Conrad Ray Burns (born January 25, 1935) is the lame duck junior United States Senator from Montana. ... Jon Tester Jon Tester (born August 21, 1956) is a Democratic politician from Montana and candidate for the United States Senate in 2006. ...

Burns was running for re-election to a fourth term in the Senate, where he has served since 1989. Tester is currently serving as President of the Montana State Senate. He defeated John Morrison, the Montana State Auditor, in the June primary. A senate is a deliberative body, often the upper house or chamber of a legislature. ... 1989 (MCMLXXXIX) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... John Morrison (born 1961) was elected as state Auditor in Montana in November 2000, and re-elected in 2004. ...


The race was expected to be close, due to Burns' previous narrow winning margins and recent political scandal involving him personally; Republican incumbents everywhere were facing more challenging races in 2006 due to the waning popularity of Congress and the leadership of President George W. Bush. In July 2006, the Rasmussen report viewed Burns as the "second most vulnerable Senator seeking re-election this year (Pennsylvania’s Rick Santorum is still the most vulnerable)."[2] George Walker Bush (born July 6, 1946) is the 43rd and current President of the United States, inaugurated on January 20, 2001. ... Santorum redirects here. ...


Due to errors with polling machines the Montana count was delayed well into Wednesday 8 November. The race was too close to call throughout the night and many pundits predicted the need for a recount. November 8 is the 312th day of the year (313th in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar, with 53 days remaining. ...

In Montana elections, if the margin of defeat is more than 1/4 % but less than 1/2 %, the losing candicate can request a recount if they pay for it themselves.[6] However, this election did not qualify for a recount because the margin was larger than 0.5%.


A day or two later Burns admitted that he lost and Tester won.


The race was the closest Senate election of 2006 (in terms of absolute vote difference; the closest race by percentage difference was the Virginia senate election). The Virginia Senate election of 2006 will be held on November 7, 2006. ...

Incumbent

Burns was first elected as the junior United States Senator from Montana in 1988, when he defeated Democratic incumbent John Melcher in a close race, 51% to 48%. Burns was re-elected in a landslide, 70% to 30%, over Jack Mudd in the Republican Revolution year of 1994. In 2000, however, Burns faced well-financed farmer Brian Schweitzer whom he beat by only 51% to 47%. In 2004, Schweitzer was elected as Governor of Montana. 1988 (MCMLXXXVIII) was a leap year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Burns appears to be much less popular than his Democratic colleague in the Senate, Max Baucus, who has served since 1978. In 2000, George W. Bush carried Montana 58% to 33% in the race for President, but Burns won by only 4%. Since the direct election of Senators began in 1913, Burns is only the second Republican it has elected to the U.S. Senate. Also, for thirty-two straight years, 1952 to 1984, Montana elected only Democratic Senators.

Burns' recent involvement in the Jack Abramoff scandal has made him vulnerable. A SurveyUSA poll released in March 2006 found that 38% of Montanans approved of him, while 52% disapproved of him.[7] Recent polls against leading Democratic candidates had him below his challengers. ÷ It has been suggested that Category:Jack Abramoff scandals be merged into this article or section. ...

Republicans

  • Bob Keenan who was Burns' main challenger was first elected to the Montana House in 1994 and served on the Bigfork School Board before that. He was elected to the state Senate in 1998 and served as Senate president in 2003 and 2004. Facing term limits in the state Senate, he withdrew from earlier plans to run again for a state House seat.[11]
  • Bob Kelleher,[12] an attorney, liberal activist, and frequent candidate (including being a Green Party candidate).[13]
  • Daniel Lloyd Neste Huffman of Great Falls, a car salesman and bingo parlor caller, who has lost three bids for office in Cascade County as a Reform Party candidate.[11][14]

Keenan ran a very low key campaign, and Burns won in a landslide. 1994 (MCMXCIV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated as the International Year of the Family and the International Year of the Sport and the Olympic Ideal by United Nations. ...

Democrats

Early in the race, Clint Wilkes, a Bozeman resident, 55, and a newcomer to politics, had announced that he was running.[15][16] However, he did not file by the deadline. Bozeman is a city in southwestern Montana, USA. It is the county seat of Gallatin County. ...


Four Democratic candidates other than Tester did file by the deadline:[17]

  • Robert Candee, a farmer who unsuccessfully ran for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. House in 2002.
  • Ken Marcure, a man who has been living in Japan.[11]
  • John Morrison, an attorney who was re-elected as the Montana State Auditor in November 2004. He also serves as Montana's Insurance and Securities Commissioner. He was the first to announce his candidacy, in April 2005.[18][19]
  • Paul Richards, the owner of a PR consulting firm and a member of the Montana House of Representatives[20]

On May 31, 2006, Richards, citing the closeness of the race, and his own position (third) in the polls, withdrew from the race, and threw his support to Tester.[21] John Morrison (born 1961) was elected as state Auditor in Montana in November 2000, and re-elected in 2004. ... May 31 is the 151st day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (152nd in leap years), with 214 days remaining. ... 2006 (MMVI) is a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Morrison started off strong in the race for the Democratic nomination for Senator, collecting $1.05 million as of the start of 2006, including $409,241 in the last three months of 2005.[22] but Morrison’s advantages in fundraising and name identification have not translated into a lead in the polls.[23] Later, the race was called a "deadlock,"[24] but Tester continued to gather momentum.


On primary night, June 6, 2006, Tester won by a 25-point margin despite polls indicating a close race between Morrison and him just before the election. June 6 is the 157th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (158th in leap years), with 208 days remaining. ... 2006 (MMVI) is a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Senator Conrad Burns of Montana faced a strong challenge from current Governor Brian Schweitzer in 2000, being re-elected by a mere 3% in a state that went for Bush twice by margins of over 20%. This, combined with the increasing strength of the state Democratic party and accusations of ethical issues related to the Jack Abramoff scandal, made this a highly competitive race. The two major candidates vying for the Democratic nomination were State Auditor John Morrison and state Senate President Jon Tester. But Morrison's campaign was undermined by a scandal involving his affair with a woman whose fiancé was being investigated by Morrison's office, and Tester ended up winning the primary by a 61% to 35% margin, despite being outspent 2 to 1 by Morrison.

On March 22, 2006, one day before the filing deadline, Republican state Senate Minority Leader Bob Keenan announced that he would challenge Burns in the June 6, 2006 primary. A former Big Fork School Board member and tavern owner, Keenan claimed that Burns will be defeated if he's the nominee. Nevertheless, Burns won the primary with approximately 74% of the vote; Keenan attracted only 21% of support. March 22 is the 81st day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (82nd in leap years). ... 2006 (MMVI) is a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

On July 27, Burns was forced to apologize after he confronted out of state firefighters who were preparing to leave Montana after helping contain a summer forest fire and directly questioned their competence and skill; Burns was strongly criticized.[25] July 27 is the 208th day (209th in leap years) of the year in the Gregorian Calendar, with 157 days remaining. ...


On August 31, in a letter faxed to the office of Montana governor Brian Schweitzer, Burns urged the governor, a Democrat, to declare a fire state of emergency and activate the Montana Army National Guard for firefighting. Schweitzer had already declared such a state of emergency on July 11 — thus, activating the Montana Army National Guard. He issued a second declaration on August 11. James Pendleton, a Burns spokesman, said the senator was "pretty sure" Schweitzer had already issued such a disaster declaration, but just wanted to make sure. "The genesis of the letter was just to make sure that all the bases were covered," Pendleton said. "This is not a political football. It’s just a cover-the-bases letter and certainly casts no aspersions on the governor."[26] August 31 is the 243rd day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (244th in leap years), with 122 days remaining. ... Brian Schweitzer (born September 4, 1955) is the Governor of Montana and a member of the Democratic Party. ...


A survey by Rasmussen Reports indicated Tester increased his advantage over Burns from a 4 percentage-point lead in May to a 7-point lead, 50 percent to 43 percent, in July. A survey by Rasmussen Reports in September shows Tester leading Burns 52 percent to 43 percent.[27] In early August, CQPolitics changed its rating on the race from "Leans Republican" to "No Clear Favorite."[28]
