Colo. cen­trist Bennet hints at join­ing race

Houston Chronicle - - NEWSMAKERS -

Sen. Michael Bennet had a mes­sage for fel­low Democrats this week­end as two more White House con­tenders for­mally jumped into the 2020 pres­i­den­tial race: Don’t for­get about me.

“We’ve got a mil­lion peo­ple that are go­ing to run, which I think is great,” Bennet, of Colorado, said Sun­day on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” But, he added, “I think hav­ing one more voice in that con­ver­sa­tion that’s fo­cused on Amer­ica’s fu­ture, I don’t think would hurt.”

Bennet, 54, cast him­self as a cen­trist Demo­crat who would bring busi­ness and man­age­rial ex­pe­ri­ence to the crowded field, should he de­cide to run. Be­fore be­ing ap­pointed to the Se­nate in 2009, Bennet, an at­tor­ney, served as su­per­in­ten­dent of Den­ver Pub­lic Schools and worked for a large pri­vate com­pany.
