Forward Montana receives national coverage

Posted By on Mon, Feb 11, 2013 at 2:44 PM


The New York Times can't stop writing about Missoula.

A few days after previewing the Jordan Johnson rape case, the Grey Lady covered Forward Montana in a glowing examination of those who are "Young, Liberal and Open to Big Government." (That's the title of the article.)

Here's how it starts:

This funky college town, nestled along two rivers where five mountain ranges converge, has long been a liberal pocket, an isolated speck of blue in a deeply red state. Now Montana is electing more politicians who lean that way, thanks to a different-minded generation of young voters animated by the recession and social issues.

It's a fun read about a strong local organization — and a little different from the national exposure generated by the Johnson case. Read the full thing here.
