In Mont. governor race, candidates vie to be coal's champion

Montana gubernatorial candidate Greg Gianforte (R) has visited the town of Colstrip six times in the last year. The community of 2,300 might seem like an odd place to mine for votes — but what Colstrip lacks in electoral heft, it makes up for in symbolic importance. The eastern Montana prairie town is home to the second-largest coal-fired power plant west of the Mississippi River. And like most coal plants these days, its future is very much in doubt.
