The two-term senator announced this month that he had the cancer been diagnosed, but he told Fox News that it was caught early. He was open to viewing a 2020 run and suggested he would follow through with the plans if the surgery went well.

He mentioned in this interview, the then-Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., successful cancer surgery at the start of his 2004 presidential campaign.
“John was 59 when he the same operation. He was there, and two weeks later he was doing in California, to what he had to do, the campaign,” he said. “So, I take this very seriously, but if all goes well, I can’t keep seeing me.”
Bennet had said before his Operation that he hopes to make the leap to the White house race within a couple of weeks after the surgery, if he gets a clean bill of health.
