HELENA (AP) - On his Facebook page, 18-year-old Jacob Bachmeier has the usual selfies, including one cuddling his baby sister and another showing him in the great outdoors with a huge backpack. But these days, the recent high school graduate is trying to depict a more serious image, wearing suits and ties, as he makes a bid to become the youngest member of the Montana Legislature.
Two weeks after graduating high school, Bachmeier beat retired English professor Will Rawn in Tuesday's Democratic primary for a tiny House district that sits within Hill County.
