Cory Booker Announces 2020 Presidential Run


“I’m running for president of the United States of America”  – Cory Booker

Senator Cory Booker, New Jersey Democrat, officially announced his bid for presidency this morning.

Cory Booker was the first African-American U.S. Senator from New Jersey and he was the 36th Mayor of Newark from 2006 to 2013.  He attended Stanford University where he received an undergraduate and a master’s degree in 1991 and 1992. He also studied at the University of Oxford and Yale Law School. Booker is considered a social liberal: he supports affirmative action, women’s rights, same-sex marriage and single-payer healthcare.

“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,” said Booker.
