Statement by President Obama:

“Throughout his career, Michael Bennet has brought businesses back from the brink, helped bring Denver from deficits into balance and improved the Denver public school system by ending five years of budget cuts to close the achievement gap. Families in Colorado and across America need him in the United States Senate to help us revitalize our economy, improve our public schools, and pass health insurance reform – and I am proud to count him as my ally in those efforts. Michael has had my full support from day one and I look forward to working with him in the Senate for years to come.”
