Sen. Michael Bennet in Conversation with Casey Gerald
Sep 16, 2019
Michael Bennet, US Senator, Colorado, a former school superintendent, is a pragmatic progressive democrat who gained national attention after delivering a fiery speech on the Senate floor during a government shutdown, accusing Senator Ted Cruz of Texas of not showing genuine empathy for government workers.
A member of the so-called Gang of Eight that crafted a sweeping immigration reform bill in 2013, he said that legislation “still could be the basis of fixing our immigration system.” He talks with author Casey Gerald about his views on climate change, gun reform, immigration, education, health care, national security, and his goals for the economy.
