Gov­er­nor of Mon­tana en­ters pres­i­den­tial race

The Tribune (SLO) - - Insight -

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 an­nounce­ment. “I go all across our state’s 147,000 square miles and look for com­mon ground to get things done.”

With his en­try, the Demo­cratic field grew to nearly two dozen con­tes­tants, the largest in mod­ern his­tory.
