Steve Bullock is contesting for the Senate seat in Montana against Steve Daines (R).
Stephen Clark Bullock (born April 11, 1966) is an American politician, lawyer, and former professor serving as the 24th and current governor of Montana since 2013.
Born in Missoula, Montana, Bullock graduated from Claremont McKenna College and Columbia Law School. He began his career working as legal counsel to the Secretary of State of Montana before becoming the Executive Assistant Attorney General and acting Chief Deputy Attorney General of Montana. Bullock then entered private practice as a lawyer for Steptoe & Johnson. He was an adjunct professor at George Washington University Law School before opening his own law firm upon returning to Montana. In 2008, Bullock was elected Attorney General of Montana, and he served one term from 2009 to 2013.
Bullock’s decision to contest for the Senate seat in Montana came after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) flew to Montana to persuade him to run and after he talked with former president Barack Obama. Bullock is running for the seat formerly held for six terms by Democrat Max Baucus.
