Montana: Jon Tester (D) vs. Denny Rehberg (R)
The Associated Press called the race for Senate Banking Committee member Jon Tester on Wednesday morning, an unexpected boon for banks who had heavily supported the Montana Democrat despite long odds.

Tester is a crucial banking ally in the Senate, in part for his ultimately unsuccessful efforts to delay a Federal Reserve Board rule that capped debit card interchange fees.
