Cory Booker Announces Withdrawal From Presidential Race

At approximately 10 a.m. this morning (Monday), 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and a New Jersey Senator, Cory Booker, announced his withdrawal from the race. Booker says in a videotaped statement that this was a difficult decision. “But I got in this race to win, and I’ve always said I wouldn’t continue if there was no longer a path to victory,” he said. Fundraising woes are at the heart of Booker’s campaign withdrawal. He adds that not being able to participate in the debates and having to spend time on the impeachment hearings for President Trump only further hinder fundraising efforts. Booker will stand behind the Democratic nominee for president and will do everything in his power to help them get elected in what he calls “the most important election of our lifetime.”
