It was no secret that Gov. Steve Bullock of Montana has an oversized ego. He’s the guy who promised he was going to “take our democracy back” when he announced his disastrous presidential bid in May.
Instead, he took a shellacking and exited the Democratic nomination battle with the same “less than 1%” support in December that he had when he started.
He’s also the guy who said repeatedly for the last 10 months that he had no interest in running for Senate against incumbent Republican Steve Daines, even though he was being wooed as the only viable option the Democrats had for gaining enough seats this year to strip Mitch McConnell of his near-absolute power as majority leader.
