Bullock, Daines prepare for epic Senate battle – by aiming for the center

Republican U.S. Sen. Steve Daines and his Democratic challenger, Gov. Steve Bullock, are arming up for Montana’s most expensive, high-profile battle of 2020 – a marquee race that could decide control of the U.S. Senate.

But in some of their first remarks after the June 2 primary, both men also are aiming for the political middle, where close elections are often won or lost in Montana.

“I’ve been recognized as one of the most bipartisan, most effective senators,” Daines told MTN News in an interview last week. “I was trained to solve problems, get results for Montana – not argue about them.”
