I continue to receive e-mails from Senate Democrats in support of Governor Steve Bullock’s (D. MT) U.S. Senate campaign. U.S. Senator Chris Coons (D. DE):
On Monday, Governor Steve Bullock announced his candidacy to become Montana's next Senator. Now, Democrats have another great candidate who can help end the era of Mitch McConnell's leadership.
In two terms as governor, Steve Bullock was able to expand Medicaid, invest in public education, and fight the corrupting influence of money in politics, all with a Republican Legislature. He's exactly the kind of leader we need in the Senate to get things done for the American people.
Democrats need to win at least four seats to take back the Senate. Steve's proven that he can win in a state that Trump won before, and in November, I know he can win again.
But taking back the Senate won't be easy. Mitch McConnell's allies are already attacking Steve, and they will be ready to spend big to maintain Republican control of the Senate.
I'm working to make sure Steve has the resources necessary to prepare for whatever attacks come his way and help us flip the Senate. Will you join me in supporting his campaign today?
U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D. CT):
This is really exciting news: Gov. Steve Bullock just announced he's running for U.S. Senate in Montana.
Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight says that Senate control is up for grabs this cycle. And now, with Steve Bullock in this race to flip a critical red seat blue, we've got a better chance than ever to finally break Mitch McConnell's stranglehold on the Senate majority once and for all.
But it's going to take every ounce of grassroots support from people like you to make it happen: Will you rush $25 or more to support Steve Bullock now? Your contribution will help flip one of the four critical seats we need to take back the Senate for Democrats.
I know we can count on Steve Bullock to get things done in Washington for working families because he's been delivering results in Montana throughout his entire career. He fought to protect health care, expanded Medicaid and passed a ban on dark money – all by working across the aisle in a historically red state. I can't wait for his voice to be on the front lines of these crucial fights in the Senate.
But here's the deal: Steve is up against the full force of Donald Trump and his right-wing allies, who are desperate to continue pushing their dangerous agenda through the Senate. That's why we need to raise $10,000 before midnight tonight to help build a grassroots movement strong enough to take on these special interests and flip this critical Senate seat – and I'm personally asking you to step up with your support today.
Thanks so much,
And U.S. Senate Minority Whip Duck Durbin (D. IL):
Governor Steve Bullock just announced that he’s running for U.S. Senate in Montana.
As soon as he jumped in the race, Bullock put this seat in play for Democrats. Our hopes of electing a Democratic Senate this year just got a lot better, but we’ve got to put those hopes into action by supporting Steve as he launches his campaign.
To take back the Senate this year, Democrats need to flip four GOP-held seats. Steve Bullock’s campaign is the best sign yet that Montana can be one of them — but we’ve got to fight for it.
Steve Bullock is well-known and well-liked in Montana and knows what the voters there want from their leaders. As a lifelong Montanan and two-term governor, he is in the perfect position to flip this crucial seat from red to blue and help build a new Democratic majority in the Senate.
But the GOP and special interests are already lining up to keep this seat red and hold onto their majority in the Senate. We have to work hard, but together, we can defeat them in November.
