Montana's attorney general Tim Fox and state Sen. Al Olszewski, opponents in the Republican gubernatorial primary, squared off in a debate Tuesday night at Carroll College in Helena. The debate was organized by the campaigns and moderated by Webb Brown, the former president of the state Chamber of Commerce.

The Republican attorney general and candidate for governor asked Federal District Judge Brian Morris on Monday to allow Montana to join the U.S. government and pipeline developer TC Energy in defending the project. The attorney general’s request notes that Keystone XL pipeline would generate about $63 million a year in property taxes for Montana. The six counties along the Keystone XL would see their annual property tax revenues increase 151%. The pipeline also offers an on-ramp located in Baker for Bakken crude.

Even with the Republican primary over eight months away, Attorney General Tim Fox is wasting no time courting Montanans as he seeks the Republican nomination for governor. He had traveled 3,400 miles – all by car – in the two weeks before he sat down with the Daily Inter Lake editorial board on Thursday to talk about his campaign.
