BREAKING – VIDEO: Cory Booker Announces Run For President

In an early Friday morning video to supporters, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker announced that he planned to pursue the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in 2020. Booker has served in the US Senate since 2013, and was mayor of Newark from 2006 to 2013.

In his video message, Booker took an obvious swipe at President Trump, saying that he wants Americans to see their leaders on TV and “feel pride, not shame”, and that “together we will channel our common pain into our common purpose. Together, America, we will rise”. Booker and other Democrats often attack President Trump as bringing shame upon the United States on the international stage.

Booker’s campaign is centered around unity and bringing people together, in hopes that an uplifting message will create a stark contrast between himself and President Trump, with voters hopefully choosing an uplifting message rather than Trump, who has an abrasive style of leading.

Senator Booker joins a crowded Democratic field vying to lead the Democratic party in the upcoming presidential election, including rising Democratic stars Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Julian Castro.

In his bid to raise his national profile, Booker will visit Iowa next weekend and then go on to campaign in South Carolina and New Hampshire the following week.

Booker’s chief accomplishment in the Senate was his involvement in the recent passing of a criminal justice reform bill. He has also championed clean energy and combatting climate change. In 2017, he co-sponsored Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-for-All bill.

He has faced criticism from Democrats for his ties to Wall Street, including a $2 million campaign contribution he accepted from the securities and investment industry during his 2014 Senate run. Booker has promised not to accept money from SuperPAC’s and lobbyists in his presidential campaign.

    • yes—i remember he came to lakewood and promised to “have our backs”—then voted for the iran deal–so it was more of a stabbing of our backs—i would never vote for him

  1. Doesn’t stand a chance of becoming their party’s nominee and also has a zero chance to win against the president. He’s totally wasting everyone’s time and money..

  2. he supports a pathway to citizenship to our undocumented immigrants who have to live in the shadows and in fear, I support this. remember there was a time in this country when Jews were unwanted and remember we too were strangers in Egypt.

    • Jews were always, and will continue to be, unwanted. Don’t let the facade fool you. Furthermore, we were strangers in Egypt, but not illegal! There already exists a path for legal immigration. It is the immigration of the illegal sort with which people have a problem. Those that live in the shadows and in fear should immigrate the legal way; then they will no longer be undocumented.

  3. What a loser. Booker is a shallow know nothing leftist.
    He’s going around talking about legalizing marijuana, brilliant that’s ready gonna help to county. More potheads. The guy and his party are morons.

  4. In the old days we all thought he was everything amazing. He has showed his true colors since becoming a Senator. He was a total embarrassment during the Supreme Court hearings.

  5. Snooker Booker, leaked classified in front of Senate Commitee. How come he doesn’t get a 6:AM SWAT team. He’s a puppet poised for president in the crowded socialist herd of wacko contenders. Just look at his district for his accomplishments. Newark is a paradise, I mean parasite. The man is a narcissistic joke.
