Colorado Senator Michael Bennet ’87 has been chosen to head the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) in time for the upcoming election cycle. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who chose Bennet to lead the committee, calls him “one of the brightest rising stars in the Democratic Party” in a story for Politico.
“Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet will serve as chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee for the 2014 election cycle, Democratic sources told POLITICO exclusively.
“Guy Cecil, the highly regarded executive director, will also return for another two-year term. Cecil served as Bennet’s campaign manager during his successful 2010 Senate run in Colorado.
“Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) informed the Democratic Caucus of his DSCC pick during the regular policy luncheon on Tuesday. Bennet was Reid’s top choice for the post.
“‘Michael is one of the brightest rising stars in the Democratic Party, and he is exactly the right person to lead our efforts over the next two years,’ Reid said in a statement. ‘Not only does Michael know how to win tough races, he has the trust and loyalty of the entire Democratic Caucus behind him.’”
