|Description||Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, who campaigned for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination by emphasizing his record of winning in a conservative state, said Monday he was dropping out of the race. |
Mr. Bullock in his campaign stressed his accomplishments as Montana’s governor since 2013, including increasing spending on education and expanding Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. He also focused on reforming the campaign finance system.
But Mr. Bullock hit roadblocks from the start in his White House run. He didn’t make the first Democratic presidential debate in June. He qualified for the second debate in July, but his campaign never took off in national polls.
His presidential campaign spent more than the $2.3 million it raised in the three-month period that ended Sept. 30, according to his most recent Federal Election Commission report, and Mr. Bullock began October with about $1.4 million in the bank.
