WaPo Names Bullock as Presidential Contender
Following his reelection in 2016 over now-Congressman Greg Gianforte– in a year which saw Donald Trump winning over Montana voters by a wide margin over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton– Gov. Steve Bullock is being discussed as a possible candidate for President in 2020. The Washington Post recently named Montana’s governor as a top 15 pick to lead the Democratic ticket.
Bullock is making moves that point to a possible presidential run, such as campaigning next week for his friend and Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, who is seeking re-election. So far, the moderate, two-term governor has deflected questions of running for president, but he has not denied he’s entertaining the idea. Bullock said [quote] “I have a job that I love, that is all consuming.” [end quote]– which is what many aspiring candidates say– like then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton.
