MISSOULA — A crowd gathered at Kiwanis Park in Missoula Sunday afternoon for an event featuring Gov. Steve Bullock and Montana State Senator Bryce Bennett.

This was just one stop on Gov. Bullock's campaigning efforts through Western Montana this weekend.

Gov. Bullock, the two-term governor of Montana will face Republican incumbent US Senator Steve Daines in the election. Bryce Bennett, the Democratic nominee for Secretary of State, is battling Republican nominee Christi Jacobson.

The event garnered nearly 100 spectators, all masked up, of course. And with the election only 23 days away, Gov. Bullock encouraged those in the crowd to vote early and remind their friends and family to do the same.

In his pitch for the US Senate, Bullock said the best thing an undecided voter can do before casting their vote, is to look at his track record.

“If you want to know what I'll do, look at what I've done, I've brought Democrats and Republicans together to make sure that we have access to health care, invest in education, creating before COVID one of the best economies, actually, in our country as far as economic growth," Gov. Bullock said.

"And those are the things that I want to take to Washington DC because I do think it's broken I think it represents, unfortunately, the special interest and just petty partisanship, and we can do so much better. And that's exactly why I'm doing this and why it matters Montana," he added.
