BENNET HINTS ABOUT JOINING CROWDED RACE
Colorado 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 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.”
The Democratic field is growing fast, putting pressure on Bennet and others, such as former Vice President Joe Biden, to make a decision. Sens. Kamala D. Harris of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Cory Booker of New Jersey are already in the race.
Two other senators, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, announced their campaigns this past weekend.
