41,000 votes is all it took to get the primary win for Matt Rosendale. The primaries are forgotten elections. If they would go to all mail out ballots more people would vote, but people don't want to be bothered any more.
It's sad when more people from Montana vote for their favorite Idol contestant than they do a future senator. Hopefully the general election will spark more interest or we will be stuck with Tehran another 6 years.
