In this Aug. 11, 2019, file photo, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., reacts after his speech at the Des Moines Register Soapbox during a visit to the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, Iowa. If there’s a place where Bennet’s low-key approach to the presidential contest would resonate, it would seem to be Iowa. But even here, the Colorado senator is running into the realities of modern campaigning, where the candidate with the best zinger or a viral tweet often gets top billing. He insists he won’t change.

Michael Bennet says he's undeterred by not making the stage for the next presidential debate. Plus, state law requires library service, but what happens if funding runs out? Then, sorting through hundreds of listener ideas about improving mass transit. Colorado author Carter Wilson has a new thriller. And Clare Dunn is back for the holiday weekend.
