"This is a fight in our time. This is a fight in my life. I am Steve Bullock and I am running for the President."
The video addresses two overarching messages of the Bullock campaign: enabling the Americans to live and work in any community and make a better life than their parents, and convince the Democrats that Republicans in Trump won in 2016 – can.
Bullock said, in a brief Monday interview with CNN before his announcement, "he is not so naive to say that every voter will give a hand and take it through the fields together," but he said it was the duty of the Democrats to convince voters "places like Montana or the Midwest" that the Democratic party is fighting for its interests. "
"If we are not able to repay some of the places we missed in 2016, it will be quite difficult to do, do not impress yourself, to expect to win in 2020," Bullock said. "I have a proven ability to do that."
He said: "I have the ability to do this. … There are many voters there, if they vote for their economic interests, or their preserved interests or interests for the next generation, then they come back to us."
The Montana Democrat will address a number of issues in the presidential campaign: it is not known particularly outside the most animated democratic actors, he is not currently registering in the polls that covered him, and he goes into the Democrats with popular. months adv.
When Bullock arrived in the race late – the governor chose to stay on notice until the Montana state legislature, which meets every two years, finished his session – he has to rush to find 65,000 donor campaigns and lots of support. the polls to attend the National Democratic Committee portal for the first two democratic debates this summer.
"I'm going later than some, but I'm a governor, I had a job to do," said Bullock to CNN, noting that he signed some of his final bills from the Monday morning session.
Bullock formally announced his campaign inside a science classroom Julie Ladd at Helena High School after publicizing his videos. The site was significant: Bullock graduated from Helena High School over thirty years ago and Ladd, who met Bullock as a child, helped him introduce him to his wife.
The classroom provided a unique space for presidential notices, and at Bullock crustaceans were in formaldehyde and in many biological textbooks. His son closed the occasion by asking his father, in front of each press corps, tell his favorite father joke.

"But I can't think of a better place to get started than here in this classroom," he said.
Bullock, who was standing in front of about 20 high-school students and her three children, gave a speech that affected a partnership and influenced his ability to speak and win Republican voters. The governor argued that all Americans need similar things in life, but that politics divided people into split camps.
"No one should have to leave their own house, church or community for the sake of fairness for a better life. I was so blessed and honored that I was given the opportunity to give me back, "he said, adding to it is running to ensure that the" incredible feasible "for every American.
And in preview of how Bullock will run against Washington – and, understandably, the many senators and long-term DC politicians who also affirmed 2020 candidacy – the governor said, "I think DC can learn a lot from Montana."
Bullock doubled this position when CNN questioned it after the announcement.
"I appreciate a lot of Senators," Bullock said. "But I think that kind of being a place at Washington, DC, where talk about things or speeches goes rather than do it."
Bullock will arrive in New York on a series of Wednesday interviews, and then he will go to Iowa, a state whose campaign is intended to be his main focus. The governor in the state has a powerful colleague: Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, the only Democracy in the state elected by statewide, was supporting Bullock's running for months.

Bullock went into private practice after that loss – including a stint working in Washington, D.C. – before running this solicitor this time in 2008.
After one term as a general attorney, Bullock managed to become Montana governor in 2012.
But it is 2016 – where the governor won 4% while Trump won more than 20% of Montana – which will provide the most powerful 2020 candidate with the most powerful point of talk: voter ability Trump won in 2016.
"As a Democratic state winner Donald Trump won 20 points, the only luxury I am talking to people who agree with me," Bullock said in his video announcement.
