Sen. Michael Bennet wins Democratic nomination in Colorado

DENVER — Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet has fended off a primary challenge from a rival who waged a relentless anti-establishment campaign.

Bennet was appointed last year and backed by the White House after predecessor Ken Salazar became Interior Secretary.

Bennet defeated former state Rep. Andrew Romanoff, who was backed by former President Bill Clinton. He will face Ken Buck in November in what will be a key race in the battle for control of Congress.

Bennet’s appointment to the Senate angered many Colorado Democrats because he had never held public office before. Bennet was superintendent of Denver Public Schools at the time.
