U.S. Rep. Steve Daines addresses business leaders gathered in Helena, Mont., to discuss the problems they have had with the implementation of the nation's new health overhaul on Monday, Jan. 6, 2014.

Rep. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), beat out state Rep. Champ Edmunds and candidate Susan Cundiff in the Tuesday night GOP primary to succeed former Sen. Max Baucus (D), who is now serving as the U.S. Ambassador to China.

He will face off against incumbent Sen. John Walsh (D), who was appointed by Gov. Steve Bullock (D) to fill out the remainder of Baucus's term, in the November general election.

Early polls have shown Daines with a double-digit lead over Walsh.
