Cory Booker has stepped away from the 2020 US Presidential Race. The charismatic leader announced that he was no longer running for President after struggling to keep momentum high for his campaign. He announced the news in an email sent to staffers.
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. 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.
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.
His departure comes after Kamala Harris revealed that she was to do the same.
