  1. I was reminded that Montana Supreme Court Justice James C Nelson was re-elected in 2004 after favoring marriage equality in 1997's Gryczan vs the State of Montana, so he was first.

  2. Montana has a history of solid progressive democrats. I remember their Sen Mike Mansfield who was a progressive and Senate majority leader during part of the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. And nearby in Idaho they had the liberal democratic senator Frank Church.
