Iowa Votes 2020: Your Voice, Your Decision w/ Montana Governor Steve Bullock
DES MOINES, Iowa — Montana Governor Steve Bullock won’t be on the debate stage in Miami this week for the first Democratic Presidential Debates, but he is in Des Moines talking exclusively with our Dave Price and a crowd of undecided voters.
Bullock entered the race for president late and didn’t meet requirements set by the DNC to make the cut for the first debate. Instead Bullock joined political director Dave Price for a special hour-long town hall preview of the Miami debates.
On Tuesday evening Americans were shocked by the release of images of a father and daughter who drowned while trying to cross into America illegally. Bullock laid out his plans for securing the US border, addressing the migrant crisis and what to do about Dreamers and the millions of others who live in America illegally.
President Trump says the US economy is as strong as its ever been, but many groups say its not working for them. Bullock weighs in on affordable housing, minimum wage and reparations.
Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have both pitched plans to forgive billions of dollars in US student loan debt. Bullock says he won't go that far but explained what he would do as president to lower the burden of student loans.
Bullock says America needs a strong executive to take the lead on addressing climate change, and he says a former Republican president set the example for him on tackling environmental issues in a big way.
What about the other 20 candidates for president? Insiders Patty Judge and Pat Rynard weigh in on the importance of this huge two-night debate event.
