Split the State?
There is a crazy story out that a group of right wingers in California want to secede from the state and create "New California". Basically the rural part of the state wants to be separate from the urban part. In a general sense that means the coast like L.A. and San Fran would be old CA and everyone else new CA. Now of course this won't happen but it got me thinking if that could happen in Montana. How would we draw the border? Old Montana would just follow I-90 from Billings to Idaho with a couple of bubble pockets to swallow up Helena and Great Falls. I guess "New Montana" would be everything else. The old Montana would retain Helena for the capitol. New Montana could set their new capital up in Chester on the hi-line. Just a thought.
