How worried is U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet about his reelection chances two years from now?
He hastily and awkwardly announced his reelection bid with zero fanfare Friday during a media event to talk about the presidential campaign and Super Tuesday.
“There are a lot of reasons a person would not want to be in the United States Senate, but I feel very privileged to be there and have the opportunity to overcome what I feel is a group of people who have immobilized our exercise in self governance,” he said. “If I can have a role in the Senate in helping overcome that, then I think it’s important to do that.”
So excited is Bennet to run for reelection to Colorado’s Senate seat, he spent the last year completely ignoring us while not doing his job as Colorado’s Senator.
Instead, Bennet was running for president. That’s the job he really wanted in 2022, not as our Senate lackey.
Bennet came armed to the event at the University of Denver with lots of excuses why he
’s a loser lost the presidential primary.
He claims didn’t enter the race until too late, May 2, that’s why he was losing the entire time to Joe Biden, who got that huge head start on April 25.
Mike Bloomberg didn’t enter the race until Nov. 21, yet’s he’s already got more traction than Bennet.
Timeliness had nothing to do with it.
Bennet did not resonate with America because he brought nothing to the table — no ideas, no accomplishments, no charisma, and in the end, no money.
