Dem Governor Attacks Democratic Strategy

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock: Democrats paid little attention to places that were difficult to win in 2016.

Governor Steve Bullock (D-MT) attacked the Democratic Party for its strategy during the 2016 election while speaking at the Center for American Progress (CAP) 2017 Ideas Conference on Tuesday.

“Think about those Rust Belt states that we lost in 2016,” Bullock asked the audience.

Bullock went on to say, “the strategy was all about using data to find people who already agreed with us so we could drag them to the polls on Election Day. There was little attention paid to places, paid to places that might be difficult to win.”

These comments come at a time when the Democratic Party is struggling to get traction behind its congressional candidate in Montana’s special House election, Rob Quist, ahead of next week’s election.
