Steve Daines (R-MT)
Steve Bullock (D-MT)
Project Guardrail: Montana 2020
Montana may be one of the real “sleeper” races in the U.S. Senate this year. U.S. Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), is seeking reelection after serving one term in the Senate and one in the U.S. House. His opponent is Gov. Steve Bullock (D-MT) Montana, who ran unsuccessfully for president in the Democratic primary, but certainly built some name recognition.
Since his announcement Bullock has consistently been competitive and is getting rave reviews for his response to the ‘coronavirus’ pandemic with approval ratings pushing 70%. Bullock’s campaign for president, while unsuccessful, has given him a national following for his campaign against big money’s influence on public policy.
Update: October 29th polling released by Montana State University shows Democrat Steve Bullock leading Republican Steve Daines by a single percentage point 48% to 47%. You can read the full report HERE
We are all in for Steve Bullock!
Key Target Counties:
Motana Senate Election
How we elect Steve Bullock: healthcare and the Crow and Blackfeet Tribes!
Steve Bullock has a track record of narrowly winning races against competitive Republicans. He won with 49 percent of the vote in 2012 despite President Barack Obama losing the by 12 percent. In 2016 he won re-election by 3.9 percent despite Hillary Clinton losing by 20 percent. In order to beat his well financed opponent, Steve Daines, there are at least five areas we must focus on:
First, Bullock needs to bank a significant number of votes during early/ absentee voting.
Second, Bullock needs to maximize turnout among voters of color and American Indian voters in particular. (Click 👉 HERE to learn more about Natives for Bullock GOTV)
Third, Bullock needs to increase the Democratic margin in urban and suburban counties he carried in 2016.
Fourth, Kathleen Williams (D-MT) must continue to run a strong campaign for the at-large US House seat. She is currently tied. You can donate to her campaign 👉 HERE
Finally, Bullock needs to moderately increase his support among white rural voters in eastern Montana.
Montana Governor, Steve Bullock – is certainly one of us. He has the ‘right stuff’ and understands how the influence of ‘big money’ has destroyed people’s trust in government. He can win, but not without your help. This race will be decided by a few thousand votes.
We have a leading edge digital campaign program and a COVID-19 'virtual' boots on the ground strategy that we will deploy to key U.S. Senate and battleground states with your support. Click HERE to donate right now.
Steve Daines has an atrocious record on healthcare including voting to remove protections for 429,900 Montanans with pre-existing-conditions.
Fight Voter Suppression:
Donald Trump and his party will do everything they can to prevent our people from showing up so we're supporting the Montana Democratic Party's aggressive turnout operation.
Secure the Vote:
We used artificial intelligence to develop a comprehensive support system for vote-by-mail and absentee programs in Montana.
