HELENA, Mont. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Max Baucus has married the former state director he once recommended for Montana's top attorney job.

Spokeswoman Kate Downen says the wedding Saturday at the Sieben Ranch was casual with close friends and family, but did not release a guest list. Several Montana media outlets reported Air Force Two carrying Vice President Joe Biden landed in Helena earlier in the day.

The 69-year-old senator recommended Melodee Hanes for Montana's U.S. attorney post in 2009, a move that came under scrutiny due to their relationship. She withdrew her name from consideration and took a job with the Justice Department in Washington, D.C.

The couple plans to honeymoon in Glacier National Park in August.

Baucus and his second wife, Wanda, divorced in 2009 after 25 years of marriage.
