Cory Booker Drops Out Of 2020 Presidential Race

Welp, it looks like it’s a wrap for Cory Booker. The New Jersey senator made a shocking announcement this Monday morning that he is dropping out of the presidential race.

In an email shared to his supporters, Booker revealed that he made the move to drop out due to a lack of fundraising. It was previously reported that Booker’s campaign struggled with fundraising over the past several months, and almost ended his campaign last fall if he couldn’t make a fundraising goal.

“Friend, it’s with a full heart that I share this news — I’ve made the decision to suspend my campaign for president,” he wrote in the email. “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 the urgent business of impeachment will rightly be keeping me in Washington,” he continued.

The 50-year-old Democrat was just one of three African American candidates running for president, including Sen. Kamala Harris — who has also dropped out — and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, who jumped into the race late last year.

Along with his announcement came with a video looking back on his journey. Take a look at the video below:
