As of Wednesday morning, AP has called Montana’s attorney general race for Republican Austin Knudsen. The current Roosevelt County Attorney and former state House Speaker led his opponent, Democrat Raph Graybill, by more than 90,000 with 93% of precincts reporting.
“Thank you, Montana, for trusting me with the responsibility of serving as your Attorney General,” Knudsen said in a written statement. “This race was about law and order and protecting our Montana way of life. I’m thankful to have the opportunity to serve.”
Knudsen, 39, watched the election results come in at a campaign event in Bozeman, alongside Republicans Greg Gianforte and incumbent U.S. Sen. Steve Daines, who won their respective races.
