Presidential candidate Bullock, Montana governor, to speak today at 10 a.m.
August 6, 2019
In the wake of two mass shootings this past weekend in Texas and Ohio, Democratic presidential candidate and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock will deliver a speech today at the National Press Club on his plans to tackle gun violence in America.
This news conference will be Wednesday, Aug. 7, at 10 a.m. in the First Amendment Lounge, and is open to credentialed media and Club members. Registration is required.
Bullock, who was not able to participate in the first round of 2020 Democratic primary debates after the Democratic National Committee disqualified a survey that he needed in order to make the cut, did secure a place on stage for the second round of debates July 30 and 31.
Sworn into office on Jan. 7, 2013, Bullock has worked with a Republican majority in the state legislature to expand Medicaid, freeze state college tuition and pass one of the nation’s most progressive state-level campaign finance reform packages. He also signed an Executive Order requiring contractors doing business with Montana to disclose their spending on political campaigns. Prior to his election as Governor, Bullock served as Montana Attorney General from 2009 to 2013.
