Booker Drops Out of Presidential Race

New Jersey senator Cory Booker has ended his bid for the White House, ahead of tomorrow’s Democratic Debate which he failed to qualify for.

Booker’s departure from the crowded race was ultimately due to a lack of ability to fundraise; the New Jersey native never truly saw momentum and ultimately failed to differentiate himself within the field of presidential hopefuls. Booker never broke 5 percent in a national poll. 

Throughout the campaign, Booker tried to distinguish himself as a qualified minority candidate, but hardly gained steam. After former Obama Administration HUD Secretary Julián Castro exited the race, also due to a lack of fundraising, Booker attempted to gain a last-minute fundraising haul, citing minority candidates being left out of the race, per The Hill:

Indeed, the field of Democrats left in the race is almost exclusively white; the only minority candidates remaining are Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard, unless you ask Elizabeth Warren, of course.

President Trump also weighed in on Booker's departure:

Cory Booker’s shining moment did not take place on the presidential campaign trail, though. 

Booker’s departure comes just three weeks before the Iowa caucuses.
