MontanaELECTION RESULTS

What to watch

Ryan Zinke (R) is projected to win the District 1 race.

Medical Care Requirements for Born-Alive Infants Measure

This ballot measure requires medical care be given to any infant born alive, at any stage of development, to be classified as a person. It covers infants born as a result of induced labor, Caesarean section and even an attempted abortion to receive appropriate medical care. Health-care providers who don’t comply could be punished by up to 20 years in jail and/or a $50,000 fine. Abortion is currently legal in Montana.

Opponents (a “no” vote on the referendum) argue that it could mean providing ultimately useless interventions on fatally ill infants whose parents have precious few minutes to spend with them. Proponents (a “yes” vote) argue the measure will protect lives and hold medical professionals to a higher standard.

No is projected to win. An estimated 99 percent of votes have been counted.

All House races

Former Trump administration interior secretary and ex-Montana congressman Ryan Zinke barely eked out victory in the GOP primary over Al Olszewski, an orthopedist. He now faces Democrat Monica Tranel and Libertarian John Lamb in a new seat the state gained in redistricting. Zinke was endorsed by Donald Trump and has continued to be the subject of several investigations into his conduct as Trump’s interior secretary: He was found to have misled investigators in relation to a Montana land deal and on the department’s decision not to act on two Native American tribes’ requests for a new casino in Connecticut. He is favored to win the congressional seat in Montana, a ruby red state.
