Judy Martz, Montana’s only female governor whose fiscal success running the state was overshadowed by scandal and gaffes, has died at age 74.

Martz had been battling pancreatic cancer.

State political leaders, including Gov. Steve Bullock, are expressing sympathy and honoring Martz as a trailblazer for women in Montana.

Martz, a Republican, served as governor from 2001 to 2005. She was noted for turning a state deficit into a surplus while reducing taxes and increasing funding for education.

However, her term was besieged by missteps. Her popularity dropped to 20 percent at its low point.

She was a businesswoman and Olympic speedskater who entered politics in 1996 as Gov. Marc Racicot’s running mate. She ran for governor after Racicot was barred from seeking a third term.
