New Jersey Senator Cory Booker has dropped out of the Democratic Presidential Race on Monday (Jan. 13).
Posting a message to Twitter, Booker states “It’s with a full heart that I share this news—I’m suspending my campaign for president.”
The New York Times details Booker never made it to the top tier of Democratic contenders and polled in the low single digits. He also did not qualify for a second consecutive debate stage.
“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,” Mr. Booker said in a statement to supporters. “Our campaign has reached the point where we need more money to scale up and continue building a campaign that can win — money we don’t have, and money that is harder to raise because I won’t be on the next debate stage and because the urgent business of impeachment will rightly be keeping me in Washington.”
Booker is facing re-election to Senta this year and has favorable ratings at home.
