Montana Governor Steve Bullock is the latest Democrat to enter the crowded field for the 2020 presidential nomination. Bullock is hoping his electoral success in a red state can help boost his appeal among primary voters who now have nearly two dozen candidates to consider. He previously served as Montana’s attorney general.
In his announcement video, Bullock vowed to fight corruption in D.C. and put an end to big money in political campaigns. Although more of a centrist than many of his fellow contenders, Bullock has pushed progressive policies like expanding Medicaid and protecting public lands in Montana. Steve Bullock came under fire earlier this year after it was revealed he failed to disclose that a former employee was fired for sexual harassment, after the employee was hired by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
