WASHINGTON – Victorious Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado says he appreciates Barack Obama’s help in his primary fight, but isn’t sure how big a part the president will play in his fall campaign.

Asked what role he could envision for Obama, Bennet tells ABC’s “Good Morning America,” he has to think about it. Bennet was appointed to his seat to succeed Kenneth Salazar. He said Wednesday that “we just won the primary about six minutes ago.” Speaking of the president’s assistance this fall, Bennet said, “We’re going to have to give it some thought.”

Bennet did say he doesn’t think the people of Colorado will support extending or renewing the Bush era tax cuts for the wealthy, telling the network the indebted country cannot afford it.
