Michael Bennet


(Michael Bennet dropped out of the race on 2/11/20) Michael Bennet is the senior United States Senator representing Colorado (and despite the fact that you will always want to add a second “t” to his last name, there is only one). He was appointed to the seat in 2009, and won reelection in 2010 and 2016. You might remember the time Ted Cruz’s government shutdown hypocrisy got Bennet so fired up that he gave what became the most-watched Senate floor speech in C-SPAN history (which probably really pisses Ted Cruz off). Before serving in the Senate, Bennet was the Superintendent of the Denver Public School System. He graduated from Wesleyan University and received his J.D. from Yale University.
