"When the senator from Texas shut this government down in 2013, my state was flooded. It was under water. People were killed. People's houses were destroyed.

I was living in Colorado at that time, and I do not remember Colorado being under water. I think that is something I would not forget.
Bennet was vigorously responded to by Senator Ted Cruz, who was trying to get funding for the Coast Guard.
