Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., announced Monday, January 13th, 2020 that
he is officially dropping out of the Democratic presidential race.
Unfortunately, With Senator Booker out of the Running, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is now the only black candidate remaining in the Democratic primary.
Booker said “Nearly one year ago, I got in the race for president
because I believed to my core that the answer to the common pain
Americans are feeling right now, the answer to Donald Trump’s hatred and division, is to reignite our spirit of common purpose to take on our biggest challenges and build a more just and fair country for everyone,”
Senator Booker said via an email to his supporters “I’ve always believed that. I still believe that. I’m proud I never compromised my faith in these principles during this campaign to score political points or tear down others.”
He also added “And maybe I’m stubborn, but I’ll never abandon my faith in what we can accomplish when we join together,” “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.”
Cory Booker said to his supporters that “It was a difficult decision to make,
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,”
“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 of the urgent business of impeachment will rightly be keeping me in Washington.”
Actually Booker said Earlier this month, that the presidential impeachment trial in Washington, D.C., could deal a “big, big blow” to his presidential aspirations.
Additionally, he even stated to his supporters back this past September, that his campaign “would have no path forward if did they did not quickly raise nearly $2 million.”
Booker said that he was “proud of the ideas” his campaign brought to the primary, including those on gun control and criminal justice reform.
Upon hearing the news of Booker’s leaving the presidential race, Trump responded by tweeting, “Really Big Breaking News (Kidding): Booker, who
was in zero polling territory, just dropped out of the Democrat Presidential Primary Race.”
“Now I can rest easy tonight,” “I was sooo concerned that I would someday have to go head to head with him!”
However, some of Booker’s Democratic competitors took the time to publicly wish him well and had some very positive things to say to him.
Former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted.”Cory, you campaigned with joy and heart, and instead of just talking about bringing people together, you did it every day,” “You made our politics better just by running. Grateful to you and looking forward to your continued leadership.”
Businessman Andrew Yang wrote.”Cory Booker — my friend, my brother,” “Running alongside you has been one of the joyous parts of this race. You inspire me and millions of other Americans to be better and do better. I will miss seeing you and Rosario on the trail, but not for long. The fight continues.”
One of the things that stood out to me is that Senator Booker said in a Thank you video he released to his supporters is that…he is NOT done and that he is going to continue to fight hard and even get on the campaign trail behind whoever ends up becoming the Democratic Party nominee.
