John Bonifas Bennett (January 10, 1904 – August 9, 1964) was a politician from the U.S. state of Michigan.

Bennett was born in Garden, Michigan,[1] his mother was an immigrant from Luxembourg.[2] He attended the public schools, and graduated from Watersmeet High School. He graduated from Marquette University Law School in 1925[1] and took a post-graduate course at the University of Chicago Law School in 1926.

He was admitted to the Wisconsin bar in 1925 and to the Michigan bar in 1926. He practiced law in Ontonagon, Michigan, from 1926 through 1942. He was prosecuting attorney of Ontonagon County from 1929 to 1934 and the deputy commissioner of the Michigan Department of Labor and Industry from 1935 to 1937.

Bennett was unsuccessful in his first two attempts for a seat in the United States House of Representatives, losing in 1938 and 1940 to incumbent Democrat Frank E. Hook. In 1942 Bennett defeated Hook and was elected as a Republican from Michigan's 12th congressional district to the 78th Congress, serving from January 3, 1943, to January 3, 1945.

In 1944 Bennett lost the election to Hook.[1] Two years later in 1946 he returned to Congress once again, having been unsuccessfully challenged by Emil Hurja in the Republican primary.[3] He was subsequently re-elected to the eight succeeding Congresses, serving from January 3, 1947, until his death from cancer in Chevy Chase, Maryland, in August 1964.[1]

In Congress, Bennett was a moderate Republican who voted against the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1960,[4][5] but voted in favor of 24th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as well as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 shortly before his death at age 60.[6][7]

He is interred in Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Silver Spring, Maryland.
