The open 2020 Montana Governor’s race is beginning to attract significant attention. On Friday, state Sen. Al Olszewski (R-Kalispell) announced that he will enter the open Governor’s race, joining Republican candidates Tim Fox, the state’s Attorney General, and Secretary of State Corey Stapleton. Sen. Olszewski placed fourth in a field of four Republican US Senate candidates in 2018, attracting 19% of the vote.
No Democrat has yet announced, but Lt. Gov. Mike Cooney (D) and Helena Mayor Wilmot Collins (D) are expected to make a run. Gov. Steve Bullock (D), who may soon announce a presidential bid, is ineligible to seek a third term.
