Sen. Michael Bennet: Dems Have Been Without an Economic Message for a Long Time

‘I will say that the election of Donald Trump itself should have been enough to kick the Democratic Party into gear and say we need to do a profound reexamination of what our offer is to the American people’

EXCERPT:

BENNET: "I’m not sure what our party is saying about it. I will say that the election of Donald Trump itself should have been enough to kick the Democratic Party into gear and say, 'We need to do a profound reexamination of what our offer is to the American people.' I think that we’ve been without an economic message that resonates certainly in the Rocky Mountain States for a long time and I think we saw that in the election of Donald Trump. Maybe we’ve seen that in these off-year elections. I think it’s harder to make — I think you could make too much out of the off-year elections but I do think that we shouldn’t be going through the ritualistic motions that I feel we’re going through in the wake of Donald Trump being elected president."
