Montana Gov. Bullock Joins 2020 Democratic Presidential Race
Montana Gov. Steve Bullock says he is seeking the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. The 53-year-old on Tuesday became the third governor in a race with almost two dozen candidates, but Bullock is the only statewide elected official to win a state that President Donald Trump carried in 2016. That’s a key part of Bullock’s argument. He’s telling voters that he’s succeeded as a Democrat in a state that leans solidly Republican, making him an ideal person to take on Trump. Bullock pushed expanded Medicaid insurance in Montana through a Republican-led legislature and expanded LGBTQ rights by executive order.
