The Montana Republican Party released the following statement after Gov. Bullock formally announced he was running for U.S. Senate after months of adamant denials and consistent statements that he was not going to run:
“Governor Bullock is nothing more than Chuck Schumer’s puppet. If it only took one trip to Montana to bully him into running for Senate, can you imagine how easy it will be to get Bullock to vote for the Democrats’ socialist agenda,” said Spenser Merwin, Executive Director of the Montana Republican Party.
“When you look at his record, it’s clear that Bullock has moved further to the left with his support of a semi-automatic weapons ban, the Iran Deal, carbon tax, sanctuary cities, and wanting President Trump impeached and removed from office. Bullock’s in this race to please Chuck Schumer-not to serve the people of Montana.”
Bullock entered the U.S. Senate race after making previous statements that being a U.S. Senator “doesn’t interest him,” he “wouldn’t enjoy it,” and he wouldn’t find it “that compelling.”
