Booker Joins Crowded 2020 Race
By Kayla LaRosa 02/01/2019
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker today made it official.
The African-American Democrat chose the beginning of Black History month to launch his presidential bid with a campaign launch video entitled “We Will Rise.” It highlights his background, saying that he is “the only senator who goes home to a low-income, inner city community.”
Key points of Booker’s platform include criminal justice reform and combating climate changes. He has also announced that he will not take any campaign donations from corporate PACs or lobbyists.
Booker is joining a crowded field, just one year away from the Iowa caucuses. He plans to visit Iowa on February 9th, followed by visits to South Carolina and New Hampshire.
