Bennet Campaign Press Release - Michael Bennet Announces Candidacy for President
TODAY – Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today announced that he is running for President of the United States.
In an interview with CBS This Morning, Bennet said, "If we keep going down this road, we're going to be the first generation of Americans to leave less opportunity, not more, to the next generation. And I just need to do everything I can do to make sure we don't do that."
"I think this country faces two enormous challenges, among others. One is a lack of economic mobility and opportunity for most Americans. And the other is the need to restore integrity to our government. I think we need to address both of those things," Bennet said.
Michael represents the State of Colorado in the U.S. Senate, but he has not spent a lifetime in politics. He turned around failing businesses in the private sector and improved outcomes for kids as superintendent of the Denver Public Schools. A thoughtful and pragmatic voice, Michael has won historically tough elections—particularly in red districts—without compromising his beliefs, core values, or positions on difficult issues.
