Montana Governor Bullock quits Democrats' 2020 presidential race
Montana Governor Steve Bullock said on Monday he was quitting his bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, exiting the crowded race for the party’s nod to run against Republican Donald Trump.
The telegenic governor, whose success in a conservative-leaning state won praise from pundits but failed to catch fire in a field that once numbered 25 candidates, is the latest to drop out as the first nominating contests approach early next year.
“Today, I am suspending my campaign to become the Democratic Party’s nominee for president,” Bullock, 53, said in a statement on Monday.
“While there were many obstacles we could not have anticipated when entering this race, it has become clear that in this moment, I won’t be able to break through to the top tier of this still-crowded field of candidates.”
