Montana Gov. Steve Bullock brings Democratic presidential campaign to Seattle area

BELLEVUE — Montana Gov. Steve Bullock brought his fledgling presidential campaign to the Puget Sound region Monday night, pitching himself as the only Democratic candidate who’s won a statewide campaign in a state won by President Donald Trump.

Bullock, who’s made fighting the “toxic influence of money in politics” the cornerstone of his campaign, described a political system that has been swallowed by dark money since the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision, which he said has touched all aspects of modern politics.

It was the second straight day that one of the nearly two-dozen Democratic presidential candidates stumped in the Seattle region.

But this was a very different event from the day before.
