Cory Booker suspends 2020 presidential campaign

Sen. Cory Booker delivers remarks at a campaign event in November 2019 in New York City

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) said that he is ending his presidential bid, the latest Democrat to drop out of the race after lagging in fundraising strength and failing to qualify for the most recent debates. "It was a hard 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".

Booker received considerable praise for his performance in debates but seldom registered above two percent in polling, which prevented him from manning the stage as the contest intensified.

"It's with a full heart that I share this news" to suspend his campaign, Booker said in a statement on the eve of the last Democratic debate before Iowa kicks off the nomination voting on February 3. However, missing the debates and the prospect of being stuck in Washington for the impeachment trial made the prospect of a Hawkeye State shocker increasingly unlikely.

Booker is the third primary candidate to drop out of the race this month.

Now, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has mastered the art of the selfie on social media. The scheduling could impact the campaigns of those still running, including Sen. That meant that even later in the campaign, after he had collected some of the top endorsements in Iowa and visited SC nearly more than any other candidate, a significant portion of the electorate in both states either said they were unfamiliar with his campaign or viewed him unfavorably.

Booker, 50, had been seen a potential presidential candidate for most of his career. As the only senator who lived in a struggling city - a fact he would frequently point out as a presidential candidate - Booker was an advocate for policies that would reduce incarceration rates and help poor families build wealth.

Booker struggled to land on a message that would resonate with voters.

He instead will run for re-election to the U.S. Senate.

His campaign also released a video message on Monday.

"I will be doing everything in my power to elect the eventual Democratic nominee for president, whomever that may be, and to elect great Democrats to the Senate and up and down the ballot", wrote Booker.

His paths to victory were blocked by other candidates. Booker won that office in a landslide four years later, and was urged by Democrats to run for higher office, which he did by winning a special Senate election in 2013. And even though Harris preceded him in dropping out of the race, Booker has still lagged far behind white candidates among black voters, as a new Ipsos-Washington Post survey showed.
