Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, a Democrat many suspect will soon jump into the crowded 2020 candidate field, teased a "big announcement" in a video on Twitter Saturday.
The governor, who was elected in 2012, leads a state President Donald Trump won by 20 points in the 2016 presidential election. Bullock won his re-election the same year despite the
state's support for Trump -- a theme highlighted in the video.
Later, the video features MSNBC's Willie Geist listing off the two-term governor's record: "A Democratic governor in that state who's pro-choice, you're for marriage equality, you've
expanded Medicaid, you've expanded spending on education, you've protected the environment from corporate interests."
Bullock would be at least the 24th person to become a contender for the Democratic party nomination, joining a field that includes other candidates from Trump-supporting states such
as Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, and Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan.
Can we not? We alraedy have such a ridiculously cluttered field that'd be almost trivial for the DNC to fuck us over again. And besides, we already have a couple of ideal candidates in the running, ones who actually stand a chance and stand for good things.
Presidential candidates, 2020
22 Democrats and two Republicans—have entered the race or formed a presidential exploratory committee.
I think we have enough candidates, no? We already some good ones this election.
This has to be a record in the history of the US. No way we've had this many people running for President before?
I really like Steve Bullock, I just wish he had more of a chance in this bloated field.
Conspiracy nut time:
The GOP or some entity supporting them is doing something behind the scenes to encourage Democrats to run for president (Fake supportive emails or something?), in an effort to increase infighting within the democrats.
I don't know why that would be needed - decks rigged for Biden to begin with.
More likely that most of the runners think that beating Trump is a shoe-in because of how much of a shitshow he’s running.
Or people see that Trump is president, and assume literally any other inbred moron could also be president.
He officially running for president, a course.
Along the 538 website is now claiming he could eventually win, despite his announcement trailer seems only pandering to Conservatives alone.
Here's an interview with him from a year ago (Extra Footage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtFCR_RkGz8).
Summary: Led the effort on states enforcing net neutrality, seems like a pretty reasonable and likeable guy who wouldn't make a bad president, but America may need someone more left wing than him.
Really it's rigged for Trump
Well, by extension, yeah. Dems should really get their shit together and just cut the superdels entirely instead of assuming that they got this in the bag - again - and can just pop in someone that people clearly don't want and push out someone who'd be a pretty clear-cut win.
Superdelegates are irrelevant because Biden has the nomination in the bag as long as he can keep his foot out of his mouth
Only barred from the first round of voting IIRC
A 30 point lead in the polls would win him IA, NH, SC, and NV and by then the contest is basically over
