NJ Senator Cory Booker has ended his Presidential Campaign, only 22 days away from the first votes in Iowa. His statesment today said, “Over the past eleven months of this campaign, we rallied around bold ideas to tackle some of the biggest challenges we face as a nation. We moved the debate forward on gun violence — introducing a plan with the most aggressive gun safety measures our country had ever seen. We advocated for progressive, swift change to our criminal justice reform system. We fought to protect and strengthen reproductive rights and access to abortion. Together, we spoke out and stood up for people and communities that have been left out and left behind.:
Booker will transition to run for re-election to the Senate but will fight hard for the Democratic Party around the country and the eventual nominee.
Booker built his campaign on hope and love, focusing on “Justice for All” but had a hard time breaking through in a crowded field. Booker, 50, still has many more years if he is interested in being president.
