Bennet rises above the mud

Dear Editor:

Andrew Romanoff seems to have joined Scott McInnis in imploding midcampaign. After a distinguished career in the Colorado Legislature, Romanoff has assassinated his own character in attempting to destroy that of his Democratic primary opponent, Michael Bennet. Like McInnis’ plagiarism, Romanoff’s attack-ad slander shows more than he intended of his unsuitability for higher office.

Bennet has served Colorado well in his two-year tenure and deserves a six-year extension. There are character rather than policy differences between the two candidates, and Bennet has been given a new reason for voter approval: He is not Andrew Romanoff.
