Today (October 26) on Talk Back , we will begin our interviews with candidates for the Montana Supreme court.

Laurie McKinnon currently works as a judge in Montana and claims on her website to have "presided over cases in 14 different Montana counties, from Gallatin to Cascade to Petroleum."

It is from McKinnon's judicial history that she draws the first main contrast between herself and her competition. Namely, her position as "the only judge running for the Montana Supreme Court in District 5." This is also likely what drives her campaign slogan "Miles Ahead in Experience."

To learn more about McKinnon, read her judicial philosophy and biography. McKinnon also has a pretty active Facebook page.
