Cory Booker Announces Presidential Run
Per the Washington Examiner:
With those words, Booker became the latest Democrat to try to unseat President Trump in 2020. Booker announced his candidacy on the first day of Black History Month, and made several references to the struggles of black and minority Americans.
"The history of our nation is defined by collective action; by interwoven destinies of slaves and abolitionists; of those born here and those who chose America as home; of those who took up arms to defend our country, and those who linked arms to challenge and change it," Booker said.
In his video, Booker talks about the common pain of American people and claims that needs to be channeled into finding a common purpose.
Booker will head to Iowa Feb. 8-9 and South Carolina Feb. 10. He also plans to visit New Hampshire over Presidents Day weekend.
Booker's announcement comes nearly one year before the Iowa caucuses.
