MONTANA GOV. BULLOCK JOINS PRESIDENTIAL RACE
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.
