HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Former Lt. Gov. John Bohlinger says he will continue his campaign for U.S. Senate a month after saying he would probably drop out.

The Helena Democrat said Friday he was convinced after making a speech in Butte Wednesday, when several people approached him and asked him to stay in the race.

Bohlinger said in February he would “probably” drop his campaign after Democrat John Walsh was appointed to serve the remainder of former U.S. Sen. Max Baucus’ term.

Walsh, Bohlinger and Dirk Adams of Wilsall are vying for the Democratic nomination for the open seat.

Bohlinger said then he knew he couldn’t win a 100-yard dash if his opponent has a 40-yard head start.

He amended the metaphor Friday, saying he could still win if his opponent stumbles.
