Montana's governor enters presidential race

Morgan here now with breaking news overnight in the race for the white house.

Kelsie yet another democratic candidate is in the race... and this time it's another local name.

Montana's governor is now officially running for president.

Steve bullock just became the 22nd democrat to enter the race -- with an official campaign video released at 3 o clock this morning.

("i'm steve bullock and i'm running for president.

With your help, we will take our democracy back.")the 53-year-old was born in missoula-- and raised by a single mom in helena, where he still lives with his wife and three daughters.

He served as montana's attorney general before being elected governor in 2013.

Bullock plans to run his presidential campaign on his ability to bring people together-- as the democratic governor of a very red state... and, his career-long emphasis on fighting dark money in american elections.

("we need to defeat donald trump in 2020-- and defeat the corrupt system, that let's campaign money drown out the people's voice... so we can finally make good on the promise of a fair shot for everyone.")although we're still a year and a half away from the presidential election... bullock's entry to the race today was considered late.

He said he wanted to wait until the montana legislature had finished its session for the year-- saying he still had work to do as a governor.

He'll now have to garner support quickly-- in order to find 65 thousand campaign donors-- which is the threshold the democratic national committee has set for a candidate to be included in the first debates this summer.

In studio, i'm kelsie morgan,
