Michael Bennet victory announcement photo gallery

Even though Ken Buck hasn't conceded defeat in Colorado's tightly contested U.S. Senate race, Michael Bennet and supporters declared victory anyhow, celebrating the achievement during an event today at City Park. Westword photographer Johnny Molfetta was there, capturing candid shots of Bennet embracing his brother, as well as snaps of governor-elect John Hickenlooper, former Denver mayor Wellington Webb and more.
