BENNET HINTS ABOUT JOIN­ING CROWDED RACE

The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST -

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.
