Will argued in the op-ed that Bennet “checks a requisite number of progressive boxes” due to his stances on issues like climate change and the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, but “refrained from frightening and mystifying voters” like others who have called to eliminate private health insurance or pack the Supreme Court.
“If Democrats are as serious as they say they are about defeating Donald Trump, Bennet should be their nominee,” he wrote.

Wilson also noted that Bennet, 54, is younger than candidates like former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenHillicon Valley: Biden calls on Facebook to change political speech rules | Dems demand hearings after Georgia election chaos | Microsoft stops selling facial recognition tech to police Trump finalizing executive order calling on police to use ‘force with compassion’ The Hill’s Campaign Report: Biden campaign goes on offensive against Facebook MORE, 76, so he has not had to apologize for stances he took decades ago.
Bennet in May entered a crowded Democratic field as a long-shot candidate. He is among more than two dozen people vying for the nomination.
Will is a conservative columnist but has been a frequent critic of Trump and the Republican Party, which he has labeled a “cult” of the president.
