Editorial: Sen. Baucus of Montana showed true staying power

More on: democrats, max baucus, montana, senate
     

The Great Falls Tribune reflects on the career of Sen. Max Baucus (D-Montana), the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, who will be retiring after 40 years in the Senate:
Max Baucus was a handsome 32-year-old when he walked across western Montana as a Democrat seeking a seat in Congress in 1974, a year replete with a Watergate break-in controversy that would force the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon.

Campaign literature showed Baucus’ footprints in his treks across half the state. His walk for Congress was a good angle that helped propel the Stanford University Law School graduate into an elected seat in the nation’s Capitol.

Baucus, who until recent years was an accomplished runner, had energy to spare, a friendly demeanor and a knack for getting elected. Some predicted he would never lose an election for public office, and he never did.
