It is expected that term-limited Montana Governor Steve Bullock will announce his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination later this month. That will give Montana its first presidential candidate in nearly 70 years. The last Treasure State political figure to be considered for the White House was Democratic U.S. Senator James Murray in 1952. Murray received 12 favorite son votes from his state’s 20-member delegation on the first ballot of the DNC in Chicago that July. Only Wyoming (1924, John Kendrick), North Dakota (no candidate), and Nevada (no candidate) have had longer droughts.
