Cory Booker Says His Campaign Needs ‘Help’ To Keep Going
2020 Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday to ask the audience for help in keeping his sinking presidential campaign afloat.
“Is your campaign facing a do-or-die moment in terms of getting on the debate stage?” host John Dickerson asked the candidate in the interview.
“It is facing one of those moments where — and people have responded to this before — that if you want me in this race, if you want my voice and my message, which is resonating, then I need help,” the candidate said in a long-winded reply. “I need people to go to CoryBooker.com and contribute so that we can do what I see a lot of billionaires in the race now doing which is just running non-stop ads to boost their poll numbers. I’m not taking corporate PAC money, I’m not taking a lot of — I’m relying on individual contributions and that’s what we’re going to need to keep going.”

Benjamin Fearnow of Newsweek explains why this is crucial for Booker:
The next debate on December 19 will be hosted by Politico and PBS NewsHour, and requires candidates to have at least 200,000 donors, with 800 of this individual donors coming from 20 different states. “Is your campaign facing a do-or-die moment in terms of getting on the campaign stage?” Dickerson asked.
“It’s one of those moments where–and people have responded to this before–that if you want me in this race, that if you want my voice and my message, which is resonating, then I need help,” Booker said. “I need people to go to CoryBooker.com and contribute so we can do what I see a lot of the billionaires in the race [are] doing, which is just running non-stop ads to boost their poll numbers.”
The Real Clear Politics average of polls has Booker currently at 1.8 percent. At what point does he call it a day and drop out of the race?
