Michael Bennet ends campaign for president

Sen. Michael Bennet, who joined the presidential race after a fiery speech on the Senate floor during the government shutdown last year, has ended his bid for the presidency, according to the Associated Press. 

Bennet had staked much of campaign’s future on the New Hampshire primary, forgoing months of campaigning in other early states to stick to the Granite State. 

But Tuesday’s early results showed Bennet trailing his top-tier rivals by double-digits.

Bennet, 54, has served as a U.S. Senator from Colorado since 2009. He formally announced his candidacy in May. 

“I think this country faces two enormous challenges,” he said in a “CBS This Morning” segment during which he announced his candidacy. “Economic mobility and opportunity for most Americans and …  the need to restore integrity to our government.”

Bennet was among the more moderate candidates running in the Democratic primary. Bennet told NBC last year that Colorado “is a third Democratic, a third Republican, and a third independent, and people notice that we have gotten nothing done over the last 10 years other than the Affordable Care Act when the Democrats were in charge, and this terrible tax cut when Donald Trump was in charge.”
