Sen. Cory Booker is Running for President in 2020

Sen. Cory Booker is Running for President in 2020


Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), also known as Spartacus, has officially joined the race for president in 2020.

Booker tweeted his announcement this morning, the first day of Black History Month, along with a two-minute video.

He says:

“The history of our nation is defined by collective action; by interwoven destinies of slaves and abolitionists; of those born here and those who chose America as home; of those who took up arms to defend our country, and those who linked arms to challenge and change it,” Booker narrates in a video released on Friday morning, which features him walking through his Newark neighborhood.

“I’m Cory Booker and I’m running for president of the United States of America,” he says in the video.

The tweet contains his new website for his presidential run. His message includes unity and bipartisanship. From Politico:

Booker will hold up as a signature accomplishment his work with Republicans late last year to push through a major criminal justice reform package that eased mandatory minimum federal prison sentences, reduced a disparity in prison terms for crack and powder cocaine and made other prison sentencing reforms. Booker is also expected to tout his work with Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) to create “Opportunity Zones” — a form of tax break in low-income neighborhoods — as part of the 2017 tax cut bill.

“Unlike everybody else in D.C., he would find good in everybody. He’d be about building relationships, getting things done,” a longtime Booker adviser said. “People fault him for that. To me, if you go a different route than everybody else, you never know where it might end up.”

An advisor told Politico that Booker will challenge rhetoric from President Donald Trump, but “won’t dwell on the president, one of his advisers said, describing the thinking as ‘you can’t fight darkness with darkness.'”

The Hill reported late Thursday night that Booker began reaching out to his colleagues for support:

“Yes, he is reaching out to members for their support,” said a former Democratic aide with direct knowledge of Booker’s intentions. “He’s going to do it during Black History Month,” which starts on Friday.

“I don’t know if it’s going to be tomorrow, I just know it’s going to be soon.”

Among those who received a call Thursday were senior members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), of which Booker is a member.

“He’s making calls,” a fourth source, Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), confirmed to The Hill on Thursday night. “He left me a voice message. I have to call him back.”

We all knew this would happen, especially with his theatrics during the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

I blogged last November about the new law in New Jersey that allows Booker to run for Senate and president at the same time in 2020.

Corey’s campaign summarized, “I’ll make America look like Newark”

Will he be the first or second Dem to drop out of the race?

T-Bone for VP

I’m of the opinion black “Spartacus” can go far in the primaries

you see the problem the Democrats have in the coming election cycle is alot of contenders and the lack of a clear favorite

I mean you could end up having Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Corey Booker, Joe Biden, Beto, Bernie Sanders, Julian Castro ALL in the same field, and that is just the bigger names of a field of a possible 20 battling for the nomination

I predict this larger field will have a horrid effect on the Democrat nominee going forward into the presidential cycle because unlike on the Republican side where Trump was able to navigate his way to the nomination in spite of its RINO base…

whoever the D-canditate is will need every fragment of every bloc of its voter base to even stand a chance in a nation-wide election

the key isn’t winning the states like California, New York, or Texas, it is winning states like Ohio and Florida

the Dem primaries are going to be a bastion of far left politics on full display, even with a biased media trying to filter their rhetoric to make it sound more mainstream

just about the worst thing the liberals want for 2020 is what is bound to happen – a very large primary full of far left goobers aiming to be POTUS

now if the GOP weren’t such buffoons – they could utilize the Democrats primary havoc into retaking the House but they seem to be so media conscious that they will instead give Trump a much harder road to keep his Presidency rather than help him win with a more comfortable margin than in 2016

(imo) Trump is only a narrow favorite to keep the Oval Office at this present time

    It is pretty weird, all those D’rat frontrunners being women. Except maybe Bernie, but he isn’t a D’rat, either.

    Booker and Harris are ones to fear – for the following reasons

    a) the democrats have proven they will vote enmass for the some of the most unqualified canidates in history , for examples 1) Obama – 2) Hillary, one of the most corrupt and evil individuals

    b) Both Harris and Booker will energize the black vote, which is one of the main reasons Obama one in 2012 and one of the reasons hillary lost in key states in 2016 (note that any democrat would have won in 2008 due to the normal swing after 8 years of republican control and the 2008 financial meltdown.

The comedy sketch writes itself. 20 people on a stage. Close up on each one as he/she/whatever says, “I am Corey Booker!”

After they’ve all said it, a voice over says, “No. None of them is Corey Booker. Or maybe one of them is. Who cares? These are just a few of the candidates for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination! So remember folks. Vote Corey Booker, whoever he is!”

Yet another hopelessly corrupt politician from NJ. And he has a secret that is coming out for real this time.

A Hollywood scandal blogger often cited on KABC radio is predicting that he will be accompanied by a famous actress as his beard.

I predict he won’t go very far as the clown car of weak candidates destroy each other in a frenzy at the starting line. Heck, NJ voters themselves might do the job for us. He is about as popular as Chris Christie.

Pure folly. He’ll be fully shredded by the time the primaries actually count for something because of the other 50 dems who will also be running..

The candidate left standing in this cluster of leftists will be so backed into a corner that he/she will spend the upcoming year trying to explain the awful positions that they took during the primary. Just like moderate Republicans running against Trump, if any had won, they would have had to explain how they out Trumped Trump. Luckily for us, none of them won. But I do not see a Trump among the candidates that are running from the left so that means that whoever wins will have to out-promise social and economic changes from hell. Thus, even Trump will look good compared to them!

There they go, copying the Republican field from the last election except,

the Republican field was full of really good candidates.

Spartacus/Fauxahontas 2020 – when Romans and Indians combine their forces, they will be unstoppable

Boy! The Dem primaries are shaping up to have all the makings of a zombie apocalypse movie.

“The history of our nation is defined by collective action . . . “

Well, sure, even those Dead White Guys were onboard with that. Like Jefferson’s phrase about “Life, Liberty, and pursuit by the Borg Collective.”

OMG, Homer Simpson is running. Hide the donuts.

I’m just going to leave this here, and show myself out.

Democrats are going to need a bigger clown car.
