Colorado Democratic Sen. Bennet set to visit Iowa this month


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet plans to travel to Iowa this month to meet with Democratic activists in the 2020 presidential caucus state as he considers entering his party’s 2020 White House field.

Aides to the second-term senator tell The Associated Press on Thursday that Bennet plans to visit Dubuque and nearby towns in northeast Iowa, as well as rural southwest Iowa, during the scheduled Feb. 22-23 visit.

Bennet had downplayed interest in a presidential candidacy late last fall, but he has recently suggested adding a voice to the debate is healthy for the party. Bennet touts experience in business and as superintendent of the Denver public schools before entering the Senate.

Nine Democrats have formally launched campaigns for president, while many others are weighing a candidacy.
