As the Denver Post reports, there is about to be a second Coloradan in the pool of candidates seeking the Democratic Presidential nomination in 2020:
U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet is taking the final steps toward becoming the second Colorado Democrat in the 2020 race for president, with a possible announcement coming soon, sources familiar with his plan have told The Denver Post.
Craig Hughes, a longtime adviser, said a final decision has not been made.
“We’re making progress towards a decision and encouraged by what we are seeing and hearing,” Hughes said.
While an announcement is not imminent, Bennet could announce within a month, the Democratic sources said.
This is about as close as you can get to announcing that you are running for President without actually announcing that you are running for President.
