He cited a lack of economic mobility and the need to restore integrity to the government as his motivations for running.
Bennet was diagnosed with prostate cancer recently, but said then that he still intended to announce should his early April surgery go well.
He’s branding himself as a moderate with a shot to beat President Donald Trump. He has rejected Medicare-for-all and liberal calls to combat conservative court-packing by expanding the Supreme Court.
