Montana Republican quits Senate race

Why, at this point, you ask?

From the billingsgazette.com:

State Sen. Mike Taylor, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, will withdraw from the race this afternoon, saying a Montana Democratic Party television ad has destroyed his campaign.

Taylor said at a press conference in Helena that the ad, which he said insinuated that he was a gay hairdresser, had pushed his poll numbers through the floor.


I wonder what big name Republican in Montana he will be replaced with on the ballot?
