BIG SKY VALUES
MEET STEVE BULLOCK
Steve Bullock is the two-term governor and former attorney general of Montana. Bullock has advanced a strong progressive agenda in a deep red state and he is the only Democrat to be re-elected statewide in a state President Trump won.
Bullock has spent his career fighting on behalf of workers, students and families. Before serving in public office he represented workers as a labor lawyer and as a private citizen led the successful fight to raise Montana’s minimum wage. With Washington, D.C. increasingly divided by partisanship, Bullock has moved Montana forward by bringing people together.
Working with a Republican legislature, he expanded Medicaid, passed an Earned Income Tax Credit, established the state’s first public pre-K and passed one of the most progressive anti-dark money bills in the country. At the same time, Bullock has repeatedly vetoed Republican bills that would have undermined public education, workers rights, civil rights and a woman’s right to choose.
He was the first governor in the country to protect net neutrality through Executive Order, refused to send National Guard troops to the border, and he filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration over dark money.
Bullock is a Montana native and received his undergraduate degree from Claremont McKenna College and his law degree with honors from Columbia University Law School in New York. He and his wife Lisa have three children, Caroline, Alexandria and Cameron.
