Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO)

Senator Michael Bennet was appointed to the United States Senate for Colorado in 2009, was subsequently elected to a full six-year term in 2010, and was re-elected in 2016.  Before his appointment to the Senate, Senator Bennet served as Superintendent of Denver Public Schools where he led a bold and inclusive reform effort that improved student achievement, helped turn around failing schools, and brought a halt to a seemingly endless cycle of annual budget cuts.  Prior to this, Senator Bennet was widely credited with balancing a historic budget deficit and implementing innovative reforms as Chief of Staff to then-Denver Mayor, John Hickenlooper.  His experience saving jobs and turning around failing companies has also served him well in the U.S. Senate.  As Managing Director at the Anschutz Investment Company, he led the successful restructuring of more than $3 billion in corporate debt. 
 
Senator Bennet earned his bachelor's degree with honors from Wesleyan University and his law degree from Yale Law School, where he was Editor-in-Chief of The Yale Law Journal.  Senator Bennet married Susan Daggett, a successful natural resources lawyer, in 1997. He and his wife Susan are the proud parents of three daughters: Caroline, Halina and Anne.
