New Jersey Senator and 2020 Nopeful Cory Booker on Monday announced he was suspending his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. His campaign struggled from the very beginning to make it into the top tier and failing to make the cut for the upcoming debate.
“It’s with a full heart that I share this news—I’m suspending my campaign for president.
To my team, supporters, and everyone who gave me a shot—thank you. I am so proud of what we built, and I feel nothing but faith in what we can accomplish together.”

Booker got into the race last February and had a difficult time gaining any traction in the polls. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that too many people know what a colossal failure Booker has been as mayor of Newark, NJ, where he has a legacy of corruption scandals, skyrocketing crime rates, and abandoned allies.
Booker, who was a rising star in the Democratic Party, watched his star fizzle out by being outshined throughout the primary, never to get a break-out opportunity.
The NJ Democrat told his supporters he didn’t see a path to victory and so he was out.
“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,” Booker said.
He left the race only days before the next debate in Iowa, where he failed to meet the qualifications to participate.
Booker openly and brazenly lied about President Donald Trump every chance he got. Many of the lies were already debunked, but that didn’t stop him from repeating them.
The Senator from New Hersey was also one of the Democrat senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee who participated in the vile and vicious attacks against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his family, during Kavanaugh’s confirmation process, pushing the Democratic narrative accusations that the entire country knew were bogus. America had never seen such a blatant account of character assassination on a judicial nominee, far worse than what Robert Bork and Justice Clarence Thomas were handed.
In that time of complete and utter chaos during the confirmation hearings, Booker announced he was going to break Senate rules by releasing confidential records of Kavanaugh’s work in the George W Bush administration, playing the martyr role of saying he would even accept being expelled from the Senate for doing it (knowing full well that Republicans who held the Senate majority were not about to expel a black Senator from New Jersey) during his “I am Spartacus” moment only to have the whole stunt deflated when word came that permission was granted by Senate Republicans for him to release the documents early that morning. What a loser.
