HELENA - Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a Democrat, is among those that received from the Republican Party a letter asking for information and donations.

The letter is prompting complaints because it mimics an official U.S. Census Bureau form.

Schweitzer said one of the letters was sent to his official residence near the state Capitol.

The Democrat said that perhaps the Republicans were trying to enlist someone into their party who can actually balance a budget.

The governor said he won't be returning the form or sending in money.

The Republican National Committee said the letter was sent around the country with the aim of gathering Republican opinion.
