Getting to the Point with Senator Michael Bennet

Sen. Bennet in Chamber

Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) will visit the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for a Getting to the Point discussion on his vision for the country and policy platform as a Democratic candidate for president of the United States. Senator Bennet will address students and other guests as part of the Institute’s presidential series. Stephanie Murray, POLITICO Massachusetts Playbook author, will moderate the discussion.

Senator Michael Bennet is running for president to build opportunity for the next generation and bring the country together so we can govern again. Senator Bennet represents the State of Colorado in the United States Senate, but he has not spent a lifetime in politics. He turned around failing businesses in the private sector and improved outcomes for children as superintendent of the Denver Public Schools.

Senator Bennet lives in Denver with his wife, Susan Daggett, and their three daughters: Caroline, Halina, and Anne.

Senator Bennet’s appearance is part of a series of Kennedy Institute events focused on the 2020 election cycle. Video from previous programs and conversations can be found here.
