Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is joining the crowd of Democrats in the run for presidency in 2020. Here are 5 things you should know about the New Jersey senator.

Booker announced his long-anticipated decision the same way many Americans have come to know him, on Twitter, presenting himself as a healer of the country’s deep divisions and stressing the importance of “collective action.”

“I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind,” Booker, 49, told his supporters in a rousing, 2-minute-and-25-second video. “It is not a matter of can we, it's a matter of do we have the collective will, the American will? I believe we do.”

  2. Thomas Mouser

    This will not work.

  3. P Pumpkin

    Failed as mayor of Newark -even with a $1 billion gift from the Gates foundation to get the education system on track. Admitted child rapist, yet at the same time holds Kavannaugh accountabile for an unsupported allegation. He’s never done anything before – what makes him think he can lead the country? He can’t even unify Newark. Thumbs down to Spartucus.

  4. No, just, no.

  5. Leroy D. Griffin

      +michael perryI’m guessing your next comment is, I’m a racist… still just based on your comments.

    • michael perry

      +Leroy D. Griffin rascism is suggesting superiority based on race or religious orientation… You havent said anything for me to say that I asked you the most important question in the english language, why. And you answered with a vague assumption. Like i said just wanted to know what you were basing your comment on without name calling or social outs that keep us from dialogue

    He’s corrupt. Very corrupt. That’s all you ever need to know. Well, I guess being a power hungry demagogue is helpful information too.

  11. kragseven

    The DNC is not sending us their best.

  12. Corruption at its finest

  13. Mark Johnston

    Booker is a Hooker

  14. Booker T Washington

    His forehead wrinkles when he lies. Malcolm X was 100% right about the democratic party. Thats true black history.

  15. Fish Staink

    There’s a hole in the bucket

  16. James Lundy

    Nothing but a crooked Communist Liberal.

  18. David Holcomb

    He’s racist👈 you forgot that one.

  19. Stephen Thompson

    What is the outcome of the public restroom incident when Cory Booker is alleged to have tried to force some guy to taste his salami? Random guy, public restroom. Next president of the US? Inquiring minds want to know.

  20. Kristen berer

    So far a Fake native American, a THOT who slept he way into politics with a married mayor (Willie Brown) and Spartacus the magical gay man assaulter. WOW! Aim high Democrats

    • 3sm1ro st

      what an idiotic comment. Among all the things Warren has accomplished, you remember the native american nonsense. Educate yourself for god sake.

    • Ineffable Being

      3sm1ro st The only things she has accomplished are subpar circus acts. The fact that you find her to be “accomplished” points to that you are either a dupe. A shallow supporter with a one sided view of her. Out of touch or just simply deluded by ideology and desperation. The fact you called OPs comment idiotic, is simply just rich.
