Another Democrat has thrown his hat in the ring to run against President Donald Trump in 2020. Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.,) announced he is running in the Democratic primary this morning on “CBS This Morning.”

The two biggest challenges Bennet thinks America faces?
“I think this country faces two enormous challenges, among others. One is a lack of economic mobility and opportunity for most Americans, and the other is the need to restore integrity to our government. I think we need to do both of those things,” said Bennet.
Earlier this month, Bennet was cleared of prostate cancer. A Bennet spokesperson said the procedure was “completely successful and he requires no further treatment.”
There are now more than 20 candidates running fighting to get on the Democratic ticket. Bennet is the seventh senator to announce his candidacy for the presidency. The biggest Democratic frontrunners are Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.,), Beto O’Rourke, Peter Buttigieg, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.,).
