Sen. Michael Bennet Exits Race

February 11, 2020

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet is dropping out of the presidential race. Bennet had positioned himself as a moderate in the large Democratic field, but that translated into little support.  He was averaging at less than 1% nationally, and was seeing similar results in Tuesday's New Hampshire primary.

Bennet joins Andrew Yang in exiting the race Tuesday.
