GOP sends MT's Democrat governor 'census' form seeking money

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a Democrat, is among those that received from the Republican Party a letter asking for information and donations.

The letter is prompting complaints because it mimics an official U.S. Census Bureau form.

Schweitzer says one of the letter was sent to his official residence at the state Capitol.

The Democrat says that perhaps the Republicans were trying to enlist someone into their party who can actually balance a budget.

The governor says he won't be returning the form or sending in money.

The Republican National Committee says the letter was sent around the country with the aim of gathering Republican opinion.
