Denver Dailies Say Bennet's the One

Both Denver newspapers are reporting today that Gov. Bill Ritter has selected Denver Public Schools superintendent Michael Bennet as the state's next U.S. senator.

Bennet, who has been in charge of DPS for 3 1/2 years, used to work as chief of staff to Denver mayor John Hickenlooper and as a senior attorney in the Clinton administration's Justice Department.

If true, the choice of Bennet obviously means that senate president Peter Groff will not be going anywhere.
