Michael Bennet is being ignored by the media

The Democrats’ best candidate is being ignored by the mainstream media.

A successful businessman and superintendent of the Denver Public Schools. Michael Bennet is a two-term Colorado senator, where he helped write and pass comprehensive immigration reform, rewrote major parts of No Child Left Behind, made available better treatments for kids with cancer, and expanded opportunities for farmers and ranchers to conserve their lands.

Bennet has been endorsed by James Carville, the architect of Bill Clinton’s victorious 1992 campaign. Carville praised Bennet, saying, “This is John Kennedy re-cloned, you can’t get any better than this guy. He’s going to succeed by his resolve, by his knowledge, by his depth, by his politeness, his humanity. That’s what people want. The best way to beat Donald Trump is to show you’re not him in any way, shape or form,” Carville said. “Sen. Bennet has less in common with Donald Trump than any human in the United States when it comes to worldview, priorities and demeanor. Sen. Bennet is the opposite of Trump and is the best Democrat to take him on. And Sen. Bennet would be the best President of the United States, which is why I endorsed his campaign.” As senator Bennet has pointed out, Carville was the last strategist to unseat an incumbent Republican president.

As president, Michael Bennet will build opportunity in America and restore integrity to our government. Caucus for Michael Bennet on Monday.
