Montana Gov. Steve Bullock

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock speaks to a crowd on June 2, 2019, during the ground-breaking ceremony for the Southwest Montana Veterans Home in Butte. 

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock says he's excited to be taking part in the next Democratic presidential debates.

The 20-candidate field was finalized Wednesday for the televised debates in Detroit on July 30 and 31.

It includes Bullock, who didn't make the cut for the first debate last month.

This time, he'll replace Rep. Eric Swalwell, who dropped out of the race after having been in danger of missing the cutoff based on polling and donor qualifications.

Bullock said in a statement released by his campaign Wednesday that he's excited to add his voice and that Democrats need to talk about the realities people face in their everyday lives.

A drawing will be held Thursday to decide which 10 candidates will debate on the first night and which 10 the second night.
