Baker noted that she has worked for two attorney generals, one a Republican and the other a Democrat, and that both have endorsed her.
Former Attorney General and Governor Marc Racicot, as well as former Attorney General Joe Mazuerk both strongly support her candidacy.
Baker said that bi-partisan support is especially important since judicial elections in Montana are non-partisan.

The Guns and Gals Trap League ended with a bang Thursday night, after four weeks of shooting at the Pondera Shooting Sports Club in Conrad.
Women came from Conrad, Great Falls, Choteau, Dupuyer and Valier to take part in the event, organized by Diane Boyd of Conrad.
Some of the women had never shot a gun before, but no one left without “breaking a bird.” The league ended with a game called “Custer’s Last Stand” with Leona Huidekoper of Choteau emerging as the winner.
Discussion is already underway for another league next spring, so if you’re interested, watch for details in the I-O.

The Cowboys saw their season come to a close with a big win over Harlem on Friday, winning handily 33-16.
While they will be on the outside looking in for the post season tournaments, they can build on a two-game winning streak for the start of 2011 knowing they can play with anybody.
The home boys elected to take the opening kickoff and junior wideout and defensive back Luke Schlosser got the team into good field position at the 31 yard line.
From here it took the Cowboys only six plays, all on the ground, to take the ball home with Joe Ries and Colter Knox doing the damage.
