We’ve scoured the interwebs to find out how U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet used his time during the 4th of July recess. We’ve searched articles, his press releases, Facebook and Twitter, but none offer a clue as to his whereabouts.
We were about to put his face on a milk carton as missing in action. Or rather inaction.
Then he popped up Sunday for a few minutes to rile up his party’s base and assured us he would do nothing to fix Obamacare.

Gardner, on the other hand, spent the recess on a Western Slope tour and met with healthcare providers, farmers and ranchers, public lands officials and others. It was a quite a busy schedule.
From his office on Friday:
On Wednesday, Gardner toured Raymond Dairy Farm in Loma, stopped at the Peach Shack and Blaine’s Tomatoes and Farm in Palisade, and attended the Cattleman’s Association dinner in Fruita where he spoke with ranchers about policies that could benefit rural America.
Yesterday, he visited Dinosaur National Monument to discuss U.S. national park policies,
met with members of the Colorado Farm Bureau, toured the Produce Peddler in Mack, and met with executives and doctors at Pioneers Medical Center in Meeker to discuss challenges rural hospitals are facing under the Affordable Care Act. Today, Gardner met with Moffat County officials to discuss economic rural development, visited Knott Ranch to discuss conservation easements and opportunities, and toured the Yampa Valley Medical Center in Steamboat Springs where he discussed healthcare reform.
So again we ask, where was Bennet last week?
