The Senator from Colorado Democrats Michael Bennet said he intends to participate in the election of the President of the United States of America, which will take place in 2020.
54-year-old Bennett has decided to participate in the elections, despite the fact that he has prostate cancer, reports CNN.
According to policy, the United States is faced with several important challenges. On the one hand, this lack of economic opportunities for most of the American population, with another – the need to restore the reputation of the US government.
The Senator also explained what separates him from other candidates for the highest office in the United States: honesty and ability to win tough races.
I plan to run for President… I Have a tendency to speak truth to the people I represent in Colorado, and I want to get the chance to do it with the American people,
