Sen. Michael Bennet has a new complication before he decides for sure whether to run for president in 2020: prostate cancer.

The Colorado Democrat made his diagnosis public in a Wednesday interview with the Colorado Independent. He got the news after a routine physical, ahead of launching his expected White House bid.

“The idea was to announce sometime in April,” Bennet said. “That was the plan. We hired some staff. We interviewed people for positions in New Hampshire and Iowa. And then I went for the physical. In my last physical, my PSA was high. They did a biopsy, and it was clear. But this time, it was not clear.”

The normally reserved Bennet actually went viral back in January, fueling questions about what he was intending for 2020, and in the Colorado Independent interview, he suggested he does plan to run for president if he is cancer-free.
