Does Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet support or oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership?

DENVER—Democratic Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet has yet to and refused to take any position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Saturday at the Club 20 senatorial debate in Grand Junction, the first of the campaign cycle.

Corey Hutchins, a rising star in Colorado journalism and reporter for the Colorado Independenttweeted, “CO US Sen. Michael Bennet tells me he’s still undecided about the TPP & doesn’t know if he’ll decide be4 ballots drop next month #copolitics.” The Denver Post reported: “Bennet said he was still evaluating the Trans-Pacific Partnership — all three candidates said they supported free trade — the senator said the 12-nation deal could help Colorado farmers and ranchers, whose products are at a competitive disadvantage abroad without it.”

The Denver Post added that Bennet’s lack of a position despite being a senator, feeds into a theme with Bennet, “that he is reluctant to take big stands on major issues until the last minute,” which is similar to his charade on the Iran nuclear deal.

Advancing Colorado Chief & Spokesman Jonathan Lockwood released the following statement:

“Will Colorado media hold Bennet accountable for failing to take a position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership? Does Bennet have any answers on the TPP, or will he do interviews on the issue and say he hopes to have answers after the interview is over like he does with the Iran deal? Coloradans deserve to know what Bennet’s position is on this issue and we need to know what he knows about the issue.”
