Steve Bullock ends presidential campaign, will not run for Senate

Source: CNN

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock ended his presidential campaign on Monday, the Democrat announced in a statement to CNN.

The decision comes after the moderate Democrat failed to convince the party's base that the best way to defeat President Donald Trump was by nominating someone who can win in a red state.

"Today, I am suspending my campaign to become the Democratic Party's nominee for President," Bullock said. "While there were many obstacles we could not have anticipated when entering this race, it has become clear that in this moment, I won't be able to break through to the top tier of this still-crowded field of candidates."

Bullock, who is term-limited as governor, will not take on Republican Sen. Steve Daines in 2020, his spokeswoman said.

2. He seems like a good guy. I wish he would run for Senate

Hopefully, we will find him working for a Dem administration, regardless.

3. He should reconsider running for Senate.

If the worst horror ever happens and Trump is elected in 2020, we must have the House and Senate.

5. We need House and Senate, with or without Trump.

To be clear, I think a third Trump term would potentially be the end of America. That fate would only be averted if we control the Senate (and therefore the judiciary).

10. OMG - can't believe I did that.

It seems like it's been two terms already. A long national nightmare.

6. I don't know why he won't run for Senate

It would pad his “win in a Red State” resume, and improve it if he is elected to a federal office. His logic eludes me. I know not everyone sees themselves serving in the legislative branch, but it frustrates me, as we need the Senate.

7. Sorry about that

We could use Democratic governors, especially someone who won a Republican state.
