Gov. Steve Bullock got a boost in hison Sunday with the endorsement of fellow Montana Democrat Sen. Jon Tester, who, like Bullock, has managed to win several statewide elections in a deep-red, predominantly rural state.
Bullock unveiled the endorsement on “Face the Nation” Sunday, saying he’s “awfully excited” about the announcement.
“I’ve known and worked with him for a long time now,” he said, referring to Tester. “He’s also been such a voice in both rural areas, places that we need to win back, bridging some of the divides.”
“Though D.C. hasn’t done much — he’s been a voice for making sure that we get the big money out of the system, which we have to do,” Bullock added.
