Mon­tana Gov. Steve Bul­lock el­bowed his way Tues­day into the crowded Democratic field for pres­i­dent, pre­sent­ing him­self as a po­lit­i­cal re­former who’s achieved re­sults in his Repub­li­can-lean­ing state by show­ing a rare ca­pac­ity to work across par­ti­san lines.

“I don’t have the lux­ury of just talk­ing to peo­ple who agree with me,” Bul­lock said in a video an­nounc­ing his can­di­dacy. “I go all across our state’s 147,000 square miles and look for com­mon ground to get things done.” With Bul­lock’s en­try, the Democratic field grew to nearly two dozen con­tes­tants, the largest in mod­ern his­tory.

Bul­lock, 53, hopes to dis­tin­guish him­self with his ac­com­plish­ments in a state Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump car­ried by more than 20 per­cent­age points.
