Talking to reporters on Saturday, 2020 presidential candidate Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said his presidential dream needs a boost from supporters.
“Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker has told supporters he needs to raise nearly $2 million by the end of September to remain competitive in the 2020 race,” CNN reported.
Bookers says he wants to stay in the race, but his campaign needs to continue to grow. Without the funds, they can’t be competitive and it doesn’t make sense to continue his campaign.
“This is a decisive moment for my campaign,” Booker said. “If you believe in me as the nominee, this is the time.”
Earlier Saturday, Booker’s campaign manager Addisu Demissie issued a memo to Booker staff and supporters, warning, “We have reached a critical moment, and time is running out.”
“It’s now or never: The next 10 days will determine whether Cory Booker can stay in this race and compete to win the nomination,” Demissie wrote.“Booker might not be in this race for much longer — the same is true for other important voices in the field.”
