Montana Governor Steve Bullock teased this morning that he too might say, "Why the heck not, everybody else is doing it" and enter a crowded field of nearly two dozen Democratic presidential candidates vying for the nomination to take down incumbent Republican President Donald J. Trump.

Gov. Bullock tweeted a video that told his fans to expect a "big announcement" from "The only Democratic contender who won a Trump state will make a big announcement." 

The video directs viewers to SteveBullock.com. That domain redirects readers to his Facebook page where it is expected his 2020 announcement will take place. 

The governor also hinted on Friday that he could potentially "run" for the Democratic primary, tweeting that it "feels like a good season to run." 

While Bullock still has not officially announced, more candidates like New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams may enter the race as well. The sheer amount of leftist candidates is not lost on commentators. 

Political analyst Larry Sabata chiming that "...Mayor Bill De Blasio will be number 23. Also expected soon, number 24 Gov. Steve Bullock of Montana. Number 25 could be Stacey Abrams of GA. Any rumors of others? And to think some of you thought I was joking about a Baskin-Robbins 31." Sabatoa previously quipped, "I’m hoping  a few more Democrats jump into the race for the White House. If the total hits 31, the party can open a Baskin-Robins and name a flavor for each candidate."
