    Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) said Thursday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that President Joe Biden should not be held responsible for “transnational gangs that are smuggling people to the border of the United States.” Co-host Andrea Mitchell said, “It’s one thing to spend more money on the border, the president was agreeing with that in his supplemental proposal but to try to resolve decades and decades of disagreements over fundamental border policy at the risk of not funding Israel and/or Ukraine, that doesn’t make sense, does it?” Bennet said, “I think that doesn’t make much sense. We shouldn’t be doing...

    Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the United States “has an obligation” to continue Ukraine war funding “without a negotiation on the U.S. border.” Partial transcript as follows: MARGARET BRENNAN: Well, when Congress comes back from this break, they have a lot of work to do. I understand you are part of a small group who has worked during the break on this very tough issue regarding the US border, and President Biden’s requests for about $14 billion to help with it. Where do talks stand now?

    Under normal circumstances Democrats portray a government shutdown as the worst possible calamity that could befall the nation. However, several have said that they would be willing to have the US government shutdown if that is what it takes to ensure that continued subsidies of Ukraine's war with Russia remain uninterrupted. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) told CNN Host Kaitlan Collins that "there is no higher priority among Democrats than to do whatever we have to do to make sure Ukraine funding happens and it happens in a way that gives them the unbroken resources that they need to continue to...

    The Democrat-controlled Senate proposed a new bill to censor and police Americans’ First Amendment rights. Brought forth by Democrat Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO), the “Digital Platform Commission Act (DPCA)” would flag misinformation and hate speech on the internet. The bill creates a federal agency to do nothing but the mandate and enforce guardrails against people who spread so-called “misinformation,” giving out consequences for information Democrats deem wrong. The bill would violate the American Constitution. “It’s past time for a thoughtful and comprehensive approach to regulating digital platforms that have amassed extraordinary power over our economy, society, and democracy,” Bennet said....

    President Joe Biden, as first reported by The Daily Mail, had a private Mass in a room at the Marriott Hotel in Warsaw, Poland, on Wednesday, as back in the United States the White House was announcing that Biden had nominated to a federal district court a magistrate judge endorsed by pro-abortion politicians. The White House put out a press release that day, stating that Biden had nominated U.S. Magistrate Judge Kato Crews to the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado. Crews had been recommended to Biden as a district-court nominee in a letter that Democratic Senators John...

    Susan Daggett, an attorney and wife of Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet, said in a video obtained by Just the News that there is a way to "quietly" defund police by reallocating funds and she hopes President Biden doesn't run for reelection in 2024. Daggett also addressed the "defund the police" movement, saying the term "defund the police" really means "reallocating" funds for mental health and social services as well as overall police reform. "Michael would say calling it 'defund the police' is not the smartest move at the outset," she said. Whether police reform can happen depends on the...

    Real Clear Politics has shifted its prediction of a hotly contested Senate race in Colorado from leaning toward Democratic victory to a "toss up" as several high profile races across the country continue to tighten with Republicans hoping to take back control of the chamber next week. On its updated election prediction map, Real Clear Politics now shows the race between Democratic incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet and his challenger, Republican construction magnate Joe O’Dea, is classified as a "toss up" after previously being viewed as "Leans Dem."

    Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the Inflation Reduction Act has not reduced inflation because it has not “kicked in.” Anchor Dana Bash said, “It’s been two months since Democrats passed the so-called Inflation Reduction Act, which you called a victory for the American people. Core inflation is still at its highest level in four decades. Polls show, as you know, that the economy is a top issue for Colorado voters. So why isn’t the Inflation Reduction Act reducing inflation?”

    In a state where independent voters make up a plurality of the electorate, Colorado Democratic senator Michael Bennet has focused his reelection campaign on appealing to centrist voters. In private, however, he’s reminding left-wing donors at a drag queen-themed fundraiser that he has a "more progressive" record than socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (D., Vt.). "When I say I have a progressive track record, I mean it, I’m more progressive than Bernie Sanders," Bennet said at an Oct. 9 fundraiser featuring Jewish drag queen Laura Menorah. "In terms of our, you know, our tax code because of the profound income inequality...

    The race for U.S. Senate in Colorado is neck and neck between Republican candidate Joe O’Dea and Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO), according to a poll. The Tarrance Group poll shows O’Dea, a construction company CEO who employs over 300 workers, garnered 47 percent of the response among “likely registered voters,” the Washington Examiner reported. Bennet was just one point ahead at 48 percent, making the race too close to call as O’Dea is well within the margin of error. The remaining five percent of poll participants were undecided.

    From the words of former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with reference to the political drama in the Knesset: On Passover we celebrate the Exodus of Israel from Egypt to the Land of Israel, the Promised Land. Today we are happy for a similar reason, and congratulate MK Idit Silman for making the right decision. We all receive her with a warm embrace and open arms. Idit returned home - to the right, to the national camp. There is a weak and limping government in Israel today. Its days are few. I hereby call on other members of the coalition whose...

    OAB, Utah — A pair of U.S. senators — a Democrat and a Republican — jump in a raft and head down river. It sounds like a lead-in for some corny political joke. But it happened last weekend on the Colorado River, with Colorado’s Sen. Michael Bennet, the Democrat, joining Utah’s Mitt Romney, the Republican, on a float through billion-year-old geology. Their time together was meant to forge a relationship that might supersede politics and help the West better address the ravages of a warming climate.

    Days after “social justice” riots erupted in downtown Denver last weekend, destroying businesses and launching fireworks at police, Colorado’s Democrat senator and its nominee to oust the state’s Republican incumbent have yet to condemn the political violence. Sen. Michael Bennet, re-elected in 2016, and former Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, who is running to unset Republican Sen. Cory Gardner this November, have joined the vast array of Democrats turning a blind eye to the lawless unrest in their states while cities burn. “They brought weapons to the table. They had guns. They brought explosives, axes, machetes, and had one intent, purpose...

    Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senators Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) are teaming up again to encourage Americans to wear a mask when they venture out of their homes. In late March, Senators Toomey and Bennet became the first two members of Congress to publicly support mask wearing to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Their efforts included encouraging the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the White House Coronavirus Task Force to update safety guidelines to encourage the use of masks. These efforts paid off as both the CDC and the Task Force endorsed mask wearing...

John Kennedy (R-LA) stated that if the Senate agrees to hear additional witnesses and grant the subpoenas that Democrats have asked for, then the Senate’s impeachment trial will end up lasting “through April or May.” Kennedy said, “If we make the decision to hear from more witnesses and to grant the subpoenas that our Democratic friends are asking for, I think we’ll be here through April or May.” He continued, “I’ve seen the articles that you might be referencing, Martha, that there’s been a change in momentum.

    DENVER — Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet will not qualify for the Sept. 12 presidential debate — but that doesn’t mean he will be ending his campaign. “Because of arbitrary rules cooked up in a back room at the DNC, Michael and other qualified candidates will be kept from the national stage,” according to a fundraising email Wednesday. “Just because the DNC is stopping Michael from participating in the next debate doesn’t mean this campaign is done fighting for the future our children deserve.” Bennet recently blasted the Democratic National Committee for its debate requirements.

    WASHINGTON — With a disgust commensurate with the fact, Michael Bennet, the Colorado Democrat, says that during 40% of his 10 Senate years the government has been run on “continuing resolutions.” Congress passes these in order to spare itself the torture of performing its primary function, which is to set national priorities. Bennet is too serious a person to be content in today’s Senate, and if Democrats are as serious as they say they are about defeating Donald Trump, Bennet should be their nominee.

    Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bennet is dodging responsibility for his role in provoking a student walkout at a vigil for victims of the STEM School Highlands Ranch shooting. Bennet, who has represented Colorado in the Senate since 2009, responded to criticism that a vigil organized by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence on Wednesday was unduly politicized. The vigil drew national attention after a mass of students walked out in protest because numerous speakers, including Bennett, chose to argue in favor of gun-control while honoring the victims. "Last night should have been about Kendrick Castillo and the STEM School...

He joins a field so packed with candidates that it now includes six of his colleagues in the Senate and his former boss, John Hickenlooper, a past governor of Colorado. “My plan is to run for president,” he said in an interview on “CBS This Morning.”
