Bucy’s victory broader than the raw numbers suggest

Democratic Montana Attorney General candidate Pam Bucy won 34 of Montana’s 56 counties, and received large majorities in in Gallatin, Missoula, Lewis and Clark, Park, and Yellowstone counties (see the graph and spreadsheet below. Laslovich received large majorities in only two counties: Silver Bow and Deer Lodge, the counties of his youth and the seats of his political base. I also think that Bucy, to my mind the better qualified of the two, benefited from an identity vote from some, but not all, Democratic women.
