Bennet: Dems Need to Appeal to Both Their Base, Independents to Beat Trump
CAMEROTA: "That's good. So you're pleased -- you're pleased with those numbers and those were positive to you. What I was going to ask you about was President Trump and the RNC that are very pleased with their numbers. They raised this blockbuster $105 million in the second quarter. And I'm just wondering what that tells you about the enthusiasm on the other side. "
BENNET: "I think that he has tremendous enthusiasm among his base, and I think it is unforgivable that we lost the last election to Donald Trump, somebody who was a reality TV star before he was president of the United States and spent his whole time in office trying to divide the American people from each other. But we could lose to him again if we don't pay attention to what working Americans desire and what the parts of people -- the part -- and what Americans in my part of the country want as well. I think that's going to be very important for us during the course of this Democratic primary to remember that we need to appeal, not just to our base, but also to independents and others if we're actually going to beat Donald Trump this time, which is what is required, the most important thing that needs to happen."
