Bullock makes presidential pitch for national audience in CNN Town Hall

Bullock is now the last state governor remaining in the 2020 Democratic field. He highlighted his record as a Democrat elected in a state that also voted for President Donald Trump, saying he had still managed to achieve progressive policy victories. He said the Democrats need to do more to appeal to voters in rural areas and other places that have moved away from the party.

“If we want to win some of these red and purple states, it might help to have somebody that’s won in a red and purple state at the top of the ticket,” he said.
