The Spartacus Campaign Faces Another Cash Crunch

“I’m relying on individual contributions and that’s what we’re going to need to keep going.”

Cory Booker is once again urgently seeking donations to keep his 2020 presidential campaign going. He made a plea during an appearance on Face the Nation on Sunday.

Bronson Stocking writes at Townhall:

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.”

Watch the clip below:

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?

Get him a squeegee and a bucket of water so he can earn money and campaign at the same time.

“I need people to go to CoryBooker.com and contribute”

Yeah, I’ll get right on it.

    *checks pockets*

    He can have this spare button, string, and ball of lint.

    *checks junk drawer*

    And this wooden nickel, too. Oh wait, this might be “dark money”. Somebody has sharpie’d MAGA on one side.

    *checks outside*

    It took some convincing, but my dogs will give a bone.

    And I’ll expect a handsome under-the-table kickback in return for my generous donation, thanks.

He’s still in the race?

I guess the novelty of Fartacus’ candidacy is finally in extremis. Oh well….

Time is tight for Booker T.

His long running ambiguously gay act just pisses everybody off, on all sides.

Come on bro, let it go already

It’s gonna be OK . . .
T-Bone is going to contribute a few million . . .
Cory can count on him 🙂

Since the Press is big on campaign finance violations, why isn’t that appearance a violation by giving him thousands of dollars in free ad space for his campaign fundraising?

He has been in the race since the start and on the stage for every debate yet he sit at <2%.

Cory… it's over. Your dream of being BO Jr. its dead. Accept it and move on before you become… Deval Patrick.

I wonder how is his “message” resonating when he is polling at bottom feeder levels? Is it that his message is making most of the leftist lock steppers gag? That would resonate – though not in a particularly positive way…

Can you imagine, back during the 2016 campaign, any of the Republican candidates appearing on a talk show and being prompted by the host to ask for campaign $$ from the audience?

Perhaps a statement from this John Dickerson person that “Oh BTW, I am a Booker supporter.”?

He never had a campaign to begin with, just an ego trip.

For a person who hasn’t been able to poll over 2% at any time Spartacus seems to be spending an awful lot of money. I wonder where it’s all going. Can’t be going to fund a serious campaign at this point.

Maybe it is time to consider the unthinkable…Cory needs to find a real job.

Dude, just go home already.

I thought Farticus had all the answers you know damn the politics.

This man is a US senator. It’s sureal.

A black racist pleading for donations. That makes them racist too.
