Washington, D.C. – Today, Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the statement below after Colorado U.S. Congressman Ed Perlmutter announced he will not seek reelection: 

“Ed Perlmutter has been a mentor to me throughout my time in Congress. His yard signs read ‘Our neighbor…Our voice.’ And Ed has always been true to that vision of leadership – whether by working to expand health care to over 500,000 Coloradans, opening the new VA medical center to serve Colorado veterans, or developing renewable energy technologies to fight climate change. His work will benefit Colorado for generations.”
