Michael Bennet, Darryl Glenn spar over bipartisanship, trade and working with constituents

The Denver Post


GRAND JUNCTION — Colorado’s U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet on Saturday night sparred with Republican challenger Darryl Glenn over bipartisanship and who meets most often with state residents.

Bennet and Glenn were taking part in their first debate with each other at the Club 20 fall meeting here.

If Glenn needed a knockout blow, he got in a few jabs. Bennet “has done a good job representing Washington,” Glenn said. “He has not done a good job of representing you.”

Bennet challenged Glenn on his statements about refusing to cooperate with Democrats.

The incumbent stepped from behind the lectern to approach the audience in his opening, stressing his efforts at bipartisanship, citing examples such as a federal farm bill, immigration reform and energy development.

“I look forward to continuing our work together,” he said. “It’s not done yet.”
