Cory Booker Suspends White House Run

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker has dropped out of the race for the White House, becoming the latest minority candidate to leave an increasingly white, male, and cisgender field of Democrats who constantly preach about diversity.

Per the Washington Post:
 

Booker, who recently announced he had surpassed his fourth-quarter fundraising goal, said his operation would not have the money “to scale up and continue building a campaign that can win,” particularly with a Senate impeachment trial looming and because he would be absent from Tuesday’s debate.

“So I’ve chosen to suspend my campaign now, take care of my wonderful staff, and give you time to consider the other strong choices in the field,” Booker wrote in a message to supporters Monday morning.

On the campaign trail, Booker preached the power of empathy, saying he would beat Trump with love. In his parting message, Booker doubled down on that message.

“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,” Booker wrote.

According to RealClearPolitics, Booker polled at 1.8% in the race for the Democratic nomination.

The only minority candidates left in the race are entrepreneur Andrew Yang and U.S. Representative Tulsi Gabbard.
