Gov. Steve Bullock Not After U.S. Senate Seat

Posted: Updated:

Sen. Max Baucus has announced that he will not be seeking a seventh term for U.S. Senate. Montana Gov. Steve Bullock says he is "absolutely not" interested in the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Baucus. Baucus announced in April that he would not be seeking re-election. The seat will be open for the first time since the 1970s. 

Bullock said Friday that he is only interested in the "great job" he has as governor of the state. The democrat was elected to the post last year after one term as attorney general. Former Gov. Brian Schweitzer is considering a senate run. Other interested democrats, including state auditor Monica Lindeen and state schools superintendent Denise Juneau, are waiting to see what Schweitzer does. Republican representative Steve Daines and his predecessor Denny Rehberg are also looking at the race.
