    Alex Sakariassen, montanafreepress.org|Updated Jan 5, 2023

    A panel of four state legislators last week reached an impasse over who should become Montana’s next commissioner of political practices. Now, the task of narrowing the field to a single candidate falls squarely on Gov. Greg Gianforte, whose office has yet to provide a glimpse of any frontrunner.

In all, five can...
