HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana candidates who advanced to the general election say they're looking forward to the time when they can get back on the campaign trail rather than relying on phone calls to reach voters while helping prevent the spread of coronavirus.

After Tuesday's primary, Republican Austin Knudsen and Democrat Raph Graybill will compete for the office of attorney general while Democrat Bryce Bennett and Republican Christy Jacobsen will square off in the secretary of state race.

Republican Troy Downing and Democrat Shane Morigeau will meet in the race for auditor and state insurance commissioner, and Superintendent of Public Instruction Elsie Arntzen faces a challenge from Democrat Melissa Romano.
