You’ve got to give “Spartacus” Booker credit for believing he ever had a chance to become America’s next President of the United States in the first place. Unfortunately for Booker, racism and hatred for a president presiding over a record-breaking economy with record-breaking unemployment numbers for every American is not a winning strategy.
The theatrical Senator Cory Booker, who frequently relied on the color of his skin to shame people into buying into his left-wing rhetoric, will no longer be vying for the top job in America.
The minority Democrat presidential candidate
In March 2018, Booker wrote an editorial that was published in Bloomberg News. The junior New Jersey senator – who is infamous for his race-baiting tactics on the campaign trail – insisted that the Fed’s “next president shouldn’t be another white, male Wall Street insider” in his sub-headline, and eyebrow-raising premise which he expounded upon in his op-ed.
In a not-so-surprising move, Democrat Senator Cory Booker (NJ) has officially suspended his presidential campaign.
Sen. Cory Booker suspended his presidential campaign Monday, the final act of a bid for the Democratic nomination defined by a persistent struggle to catch fire with voters and donors despite his relatively high profile and long-standing presidential ambitions.
The news of the senator’s decision came weeks days before the Iowa caucuses, where, despite a large field organization Booker, D-N.J., was expected to finish outside of the top tier of candidates, based on recent polling. His announcement also comes on the eve of the seventh Democratic debate which he did not qualify to participate in due to a lack of qualifying polls towards Democratic National Committee polling thresholds, according to ABC News’ analysis.
“It’s with a full heart that I share this news — I’ve made the decision to suspend my campaign for president,” Booker wrote supporters in an email, echoing the sentiment in a video. “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.”
Here’s an example of Booker’s campaign, that relies on racism and hatred for President Trump. Neither of these is winning tactics, but are nevertheless, employed over and over again by Democrats attempting to appeal to the lowest common denominator.
Meanwhile, according to NPR, the Democrat presidential race will likely come down to a handful of aging white candidates, including two elderly white males who’ve spent their entire lives in politics. The angry socialist candidate Senator Bernie Sanders is 78-years-old and former VP Joe Biden is 77-years-old.
Former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders lead the crowded Democratic field, pulling in together about half of the support of Democratic voters and Democratic-leaning independents, according to the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll.
Biden leads with 24%, followed closely by Sanders at 22%. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is third with 17%, followed by South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 13%, altogether making up a clear top tier of four candidates.
