Montana's Lieutenant Governor, John Walsh has announced he is running for the U.S. seat being vacated by Sen. Max Baucus in 2014. 

Walsh announced his intentions today, launching this website complete with a more than two minute video outlining his 33 years serving in the Montana National Guard, including serving as Adjutant General from 2008 to 2012, when he left the guard to join the ticket of then-gubernatorial candidate Steve Bullock.

Walsh's tenure as Lt. Gov. has lasted less than a year, but Walsh said is is proud of what he and Gov. Bullock have accomplished so far.

"We've been able to balance the budget, create jobs, invest in education and so we know there's more to do as the Bullock/Walsh Administration, but we also agree Washington is broken and we could use more Montana leadership back there."-John Walsh

We spoke earlier today with Walsh about his decision to run. You can hear that full interview below:
