United States Senator Michael Bennet has ended his campaign to become the 46th President of the United States of America. Bennet made the announcement public just moments after Andrew Yang ended his campaign.
Bennet ran much of his campaign on a promise to change the way business is conducted in the nation’s capital. Furthermore, he promised to be a more subdued candidate than the current president.
“If you elect me president, I promise you won’t have to think about me for two weeks at a time,” he tweeted.
Bennet entered the race for the White House later than most. At the time he announced his intention to run, there more than fifteen candidates vying for the Democratic Party nomination.
To all of my supporters in New Hampshire and across the country, thank you. I’m speaking from Concord: https://t.co/D7c43hvhxz

In addition to putting together a viable campaign, Bennet dealt with prostate cancer. Shortly before he began his campaign, he underwent surgery to deal with the disease.
Bennet currently serves as the United States Senator for the state of Colorado. He has also been married for over twenty years and has three children.
