Chippewa Cree Tribe to proceed with election
The Chippewa Cree Tribe of Montana will hold its general election after an appeals court judge upheld the results of a primary vote.

A tribal judge had thrown out the primary after a candidate for chairman filed a challenge. But the appeals judge said the move was invalid.

Jonathan Windy Boy, who serves as a state senator, is due to face Raymond Jake Parker for the chairman's position. Ken Blatt-St. Marks had challenged the results after losing the primary last fall.
