Cory Booker Drops From 2020 Presidential Race

"I will carry this fight forward — I just won’t be doing it as a candidate for president this year."

By David Kamioner | January 13, 2020

Senator Cory Booker (D-NY) has ended his presidential campaign.  In an email to NBC, Booker provided the following statements:

“I will carry this fight forward — I just won’t be doing it as a candidate for president this year. Friend, it’s with a full heart that I share this news — I’ve made the decision to suspend my campaign for president.”

“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.”
