UPDATE: 11/12/19, 8:55 A.M. In a news release about his New Hampshire filing Bullock said, “Everybody goes up and down, and what I need to be is organizing and catching fire as voting starts”

Montana Governor Steve Bullock has filed papers for the New Hampshire Democratic presidential primary. Surrounded by a crowd of reporters, Bullock signed papers to file for the New Hampshire primary about 9:15 a.m. eastern time on Tuesday.

A new Quinnipiac University poll in New Hampshire shows former Vice President Joe Biden holding a narrow edge in the race for the Democratic nomination for president in the state.

With fewer than 100 days to go until New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary, Biden stands at 20 percent, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts at 16 percent, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 15 percent and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont at 14 percent in a tight race for second place. No other candidates reach double digits in the poll. Bullock failed to register even one percent in the poll.

Bullock’s often repeated mantra on the presidential campaign trail is that he is the only presidental candidate who has won in a state carried by President Donald Trump.
