Bennet Beats Cancer, Readies for Presidential Run

Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Denver)

Justin Wingerter of the Denver Post reports on some good news for Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Denver):

U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet’s office said Friday that his surgery to remove prostate cancer was successful, seemingly clearing the way for a 2020 presidential run.

“Last weekend, Michael underwent surgery and is recovering at his home in Colorado,” said Courtney Gidner, Bennet’s spokeswoman. “His doctors report the surgery was completely successful and he requires no further treatment.

“Michael and his family deeply appreciate the well wishes and support from Coloradans and others across the country, and he looks forward to returning to work after the recess,” she added.

Bennet announced earlier this month that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and was putting his Presidential campaign inquiries on hold while he focused on his health. Bennet said at the time that he would commence a full-scale Presidential campaign pending successful cancer treatment.

    Sappy will be happy. Electing him president may be one way to keep him from being senator for life.

    Which is more “exciting” to watch?

    Paint drying or Mike’s surgery?

    Neither. His campaign.

    I'm hoping there is a "Plan B" for the Senators as they find out they are not Presidential in the eyes of the voters — taking all their time, effort and campaign money and sinking it into Democratic Senate campaigns to win a majority.

      Agree.  Hickenlooper should have received the message by now and it shouldn't be long before Bennet learns the truth.  I'm sure they're both aiming for the moderate middle, but so far they've missed the target coming across as big Os.

    I am happy to hear the surgery went well and hope Senator Bennet and his family are well.
