Steve Bullock is a rare political animal these days. He’s the Democratic governor of a red state that Trump won by 20 points in 2016. He’s in favor of abortion rights and was the first sitting governor in Montana to officiate a same-sex wedding. And he’s a proud gun owner.

Bullock told Powerhouse Politics podcast hosts Jonathan Karl and Rick Klein on Wednesday that sometimes he shows up at town meetings where there’s “barely a Democrat in sight.”
