Sen. Tester retook the lead Wednesday morning in his seesaw contest against Rosendale, while thousands of votes still remained uncounted in several major cities — including Democratic-leaning Missoula and Bozeman.

At about 9:40 a.m., the first vote results posted since early in the morning gave Tester a 1,000-vote lead, with 48.7% of the total to 48.4% for Rosendale. Libertarian Rick Breckenridge was holding steady at just under 3%.
