"To be honest, I never thought I'd be running for President," Bullock said in the video, which also highlights his successful efforts to expand Medicaid, his support for gay marriage and his bipartisan effort to ban dark money from the state's politics. "This is the fight of our time. This has been the fight of my career. I am Steve Bullock and I am running for President."
