(CNN) — Cory Booker dropped out of the race for president Monday morning.
In an email to supporters, as well as a tweet sent out, the New Jersey senator wrote he doesn’t have the money to build a campaign that can win. Fundraising would be harder since he didn’t quality for the Democratic debate planned for Tuesday in Iowa.
Also, Booker would have been pulled form the campaign trail because of the looming impeachment trail of President Trump.
Booker launched his candidacy in February. At the time, he said he was running to restore a sense of community and mend the moral fabric of America.
Booker told supporters he will campaign for the eventual Democratic nominee for president and Democratic senators.
Back in July of 2019, Politics Now interviewed Cory Booker. Booker talked about immigration reform, healthcare and also laid out, at the time, why he thought he could win the Nevada caucus. His mother lives in Las Vegas.
