Montana Election
U.S. Sen. Jon Tester receives a kiss from his grandchild Tucker Schultz the morning after the election, after announcing his win on Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012, in Great Falls, Mont. Tester prevailed in a tight re-election battle, beating back nearly two years of attacks for his support of some Obama administration policies to hand Republican U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg his first election loss since 1996. With most results in Wednesday, Tester was ahead 49 percent to 45 percent. (AP Photo/Michael Albans)
