MDP statement on Gov. Bullock withdrawing from Democratic Primary

HELENA – Montana Democratic Party Executive Director Monica Lindeen today released the following statement on Governor Steve Bullock ending his campaign for the Democratic Presidential nomination in 2020:

“For six and a half months, Gov. Bullock spread his message of a fair shot for all Americans and he did it while showcasing our Montana values. We applaud him for running a genuine campaign that spoke directly to the voters and the issues they face,” Lindeen said. “A ‘Thank You’ is in order at this time. Steve has been a tremendous leader in Montana and across the country, and I know we can count on him to always fight for Montana.” 

Bullock announced his bid for the Democratic nomination back in May after closing out Montana’s 66th Legislative session, his fourth as Governor. In that session, Democratic leaders worked with Bullock to pass our state’s biennium budget as well as the critically important Medicaid expansion bill and a long sought-after infrastructure package to help Montana’s economy remain one of the strongest in the nation. 

Bullock, who is term-limited as governor, has also been a champion of campaign finance reform, a woman’s right to choose her own medical procedures and responsible governing. He’s also stifled Republican attacks on our public education system as well as unpopular bids to transfer public lands in Montana.
