Montana Democrat Governor Steve Bullock announced on Tuesday that he’s running for president in 2020 and was immediately stumped when asked what achievements he was proud of during his time as governor.
“What have you been proudest to achieve as governor?” a reporter asked Bullock during his presidential campaign announcement in Helena, Montana.
“Um, I am happy that hopefully my kids still know my most important job is being their dad,” Bullock said after taking nearly 10 seconds to fumble through his response. “I think the things where, you know as governor it’s not like Attorney General when you know you won or lost a case, sometimes you won’t have impacts for years, but I know that a hundred thousand people in Montana have health care because the work that we’ve done.”
“I know that we’ve done more to the earlier question to try to keep the outside influences of dollars out of our elections so that your voice matters as long as you vote … as long as you vote, um, then some big corporate Treasury or a company,” Bullock rambled on. “I’m pleased with the way that we’ve invested in education. I think that’s one of the great equalizers that we have. I think another great equalizer is our public lands, we’ve protected those so we’ll handoff that to you as well. So, I guess those are a few of the things I’ve been pleased with.”
