Montana Democratic Party Statement on Governor Bullock Filing for Reelection

In response to Governor Steve Bullock filing for reelection, Jim Larson, Chair of the Montana Democratic Party, released the following statement:

"Governor Steve Bullock is doing an outstanding job leading Montana and will continue to responsibly manage our finances and bring Montanans together to get things done. On Steve's watch, Montana's economy is strong and getting stronger, more Montanans are working today than ever before, and Montana is ranked as the most fiscally prudent state in the country. He also brought home our taxpayer dollars by expanding access to affordable health care for up to 70,000 Montanans. 

"Steve has consistently defended Montana values, including protecting our public lands and expanding public access and enacting one of the toughest campaign transparency laws in the country. 

"But the stakes in this election are too high if we want to continue this economic growth and responsible financial management. New Jersey multimillionaire Greg Gianforte would turn Montana's budget surplus into a deficit, he supports job-killing discrimination laws, and would raise taxes on Montana families just to give himself and other millionaires a tax break. 

"Gianforte's out-of-the-mainstream agenda just isn't right for Montana."
