Sen. Cory Booker Drops Out Of Presidential Race
Another democratic presidential candidate bites the dust. To the dismay of his supporters, Senator Cory Booker announced that he, too – along with Senator Kamala Harris – pulled out of the 2020 presidential race. Like his co-hort Kamala, he cited lack of funding for dropping from the ticket in an email to his supporters:
“Our campaign has reached the point where we need more money to scale up and continue building a campaign that can win — money we don’t have, and money that is harder to raise because I won’t be on the next debate stage and because the urgent business of impeachment will rightly be keeping me in Washington.”
“I believed to my core that the answer to the common pain Americans are feeling right now, the answer to Donald Trump’s hatred and division, is to reignite our spirit of common purpose to take on our biggest challenges and build a more just and fair country for everyone. I’ve always believed that. I still believe that. I’m proud I never compromised my faith in these principles during this campaign to score political points or tear down others.”
Sen. Booker, also, released this thank you video to his YouTube channel today. (1/13/20)
Cory Booker has plans to run for re-election for his spot in the Senate. He, still, has the potential to be chosen as potential Vice-President.
