    During Tuesday’s CNN-New York Times Democratic debate, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) said women should control their own bodies because they were ”people.” Booker also called Planned Parenthoods closing in Ohio an “existential threat in America.” Booker said, “I’m having deja vu all over again. We have another health care debate and we’re not talking about the clear and existential threat in America that we are in a state that has had two Planned Parenthoods closed. We are seeing all over this country women’s reproductive rights under attack. God bless kamala. Women should not be the only...

    Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker came to the defense of his 2020 rival former Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday as Biden continues to face unfounded attacks from President Donald Trump. "I've said time and time again that this is unacceptable, that if you come after Joe Biden, you're going to have to deal with me in this case. There is no — as you said — these are baseless, unfounded, scurrilous lies, plain and simple, trying to undermine the character of one of the statesmen of our country, not our party, but our country. And so, yeah, you've got...

    Sybrina Fulton has earned another big-time national endorsement in her Miami-Dade County Commission race, as U.S. Sen. Cory Booker says he’ll be backing Fulton’s bid. Booker, who is currently running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, joins former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in supporting Fulton. Clinton announced her support late last week. Fulton is the mother of Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed in an altercation with George Zimmerman back in 2012. She’s competing against Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert III for the District 1 Commission seat. Booker referenced the 2012 shooting in his announcement supporting Fulton’s campaign....

    According to his own deadline, the New Jersey senator Cory Booker has less than two days to save his presidential campaign. On Sunday he said an “avalanche of support” had brought him close to a self-imposed fundraising goal, but admitted he could be out of the race by Tuesday.

    The White House campaign of Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) teetered on the edge of being abandoned in coming days, as the candidate on Saturday publicly confirmed the existence of an internal memo which bluntly said that unless Booker could get a surge of donations in the next ten days, his 2020 campaign was doomed. "I want people to see where we are and understand that we have a pathway to victory," Booker wrote on Twitter Saturday morning, "but I can’t walk it alone." Booker's comments came soon after NBC News had reported that the campaign's top aide told the candidate...

    Sen. Cory Booker’s presidential campaign manager is warning in a memo to staff that the Democratic senator from New Jersey must raise an additional $1.7 million by the end of the third quarter of fundraising – just 10 days away – or the campaign will not have a “legitimate long-term path forward.”

    While speaking with NBC News on Friday, 2020 presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) stated that the “implications of” the intelligence community whistleblower’s statement “should be crippling Washington right now” and the accusations by the whistleblower are “stunning.” Booker said, “I don’t like overly dramatic statements, but this is the most corrupt administration of my lifetime.” He also stated, “A whistleblower from the intelligence community, what he’s accused the president of is stunning. This should be crippling Washington right now with the implications of what this whistleblower has said.”

    Booker, who is running for president, made the argument on CNN’s OutFront, insisting that taking people’s guns does not infringe upon our Second Amendment rights. “I think that we’ve allowed this debate to be framed by the fear-mongering of people on the far right, who try to whip up this fear that our Second Amendment rights are going to be taken away from us. And that is just simply not the case,” he said In response, the network played a clip of Beto O’Rourke saying “hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” “I know you support a...

    Ahead of the latest debacle of a Presidential debate, Senator Cory Booker symbolically introduced a bill that would mandate federal licensing for anyone who wanted to legally have a gun. Key word there is “legally,” since a large number of gun crimes involve stolen guns. Even far left “think tanks” like American Progress admit this. Booker’s bill would also create a federal gun registry, as license applicants would have to list every gun they have by make, model, and serial number.

    But Booker said the framework to prevent mass shootings must include the experiences of communities that endure shootings regularly. “Mass shootings in this country are awakening an issue that has existed in my community for generations,” Booker said. He noted shootings occur frequently in his Newark neighborhood, including the March shooting of Shahad Smith, a man Booker shared a building with. “These communities are often left out of conversations or completely dissed.” Samantha Dorf of the gun violence prevention group Moms Demand Action agreed, telling participants that while mass shootings fill news headlines, “it’s the everyday gun violence that takes...

    Don’t drink the water in Newark. The only thing worse than the crime and corruption in the New Jersey city that gave the nation Cory Booker is its drinking water. First, they found lead in the water in schools and then in people’s homes. In some homes the lead content in the water is four times higher than the federal limit. And Cory Booker, the Senator from New Jersey, running to run the country, is blaming racism. "Newark's water emergency demands our federal government's immediate attention. Everyone deserves clean, safe water - it's shameful that our national crisis of lead-contaminated...

    In the most recent Democratic debate, Senator Cory Booker called Joe Biden to task for his constant name-dropping of Barack Obama. “You invoke President Obama more than anybody in this campaign. You can’t do it when it’s convenient and then dodge it when it’s not,” he said in what was one of my favorite moments ever in any of the debates. According to the New York Times, while Joe Biden was seeking counsel on whether to run for president, Barack Obama tried to talk his former vice president out of running.

    Sen. Cory Booker wants Democrats to go bolder on guns — and says they’re playing into the hands of the National Rifle Association and the corporate gun lobby by rejecting bolder ideas. “For Democrats to play into the hands of the corporate gun lobby, and just letting them define what the realm of possible is, it’s so defeatist to me,” the New Jersey senator told me during an interview this week. “At a time with the levels of carnage in our country, we don’t need people who are defeatist in their thinking about what’s possible.” Booker, who is running for...

    WASHINGTON - Democrats running for president on promises to slow climate change are asking young people to do more than just vote for them. Many White House hopefuls are laying out plans to put teenagers and 20-somethings to work guarding the country against the worst effects of global warming. Core to a number of Democrats' climate plans is the creation of a "climate corps." Akin to the Peace Corps launched in 1961 by President John F. Kennedy as a soft-power check against Russia, a climate-focused national service program would tackle what many presidential candidates see as this generation's greatest challenge...

    On the campaign trail this week the struggle for the Democratic presidential nomination continued to generate loony ideas. New Jersey Sen Cory Booker’s campaign director for New Hampshire, Erin Turmelle, demanded an end to Trump rallies, calling them “a breeding ground for racism and bigotry. They are despicable and have no place in New Hampshire, or anywhere in our country. That’s why Trump must cancel all future rallies.” She rejected criticism calling the demand a violation of Trump’s freedom of speech, saying that “there is no freedom for hate speech” and suggested that Trump “campaign like a normal Republican candidate....

    Never let a crisis go to waste, right? The left is using the back-to-back mass shootings as an opportunity to attack the 2nd Amendment and now they’re coming for 1 A. Democrat Senator and 2020 hopeful Cory Booker (NJ) demanded Trump’s Manchester rally next week and all future rallies be cancelled. According to Cory Booker, President Trump and his supporters should not have 1st Amendment rights. “[T]hese rallies serve as a breeding ground for racism and bigotry that inspire white nationalist attacks like the one in El Paso on Saturday,” Cory Booker said in a statement. “They are despicable and...

    Democrat presidential hopeful Cory Booker blasted Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) after the Texas and Ohio shootings, demanding the Senate be convened for a gun control vote. USA Today reports universal background check legislation has been sitting in the Senate since being passed by the Democrat-controlled House in February of this year. Demands for Senate passage of the checks has been made again and again following high profile, firearm-based crimes. Breitbart News reported Hollywood calls for “universal background checks” following the July 29, 2019, Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting in California. But the majority of shooters–like the Gilroy Garlic Shooter–acquire...

    Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) claimed during Wednesday evening’s Democrat presidential debate that part of the reason President Donald Trump won Michigan in the 2016 election was due to Russia suppressing the votes of black Americans. “We lost the state of Michigan because everybody from Republicans to Russians were targeting the suppression of African American voters,” said Booker. “If the African American vote had been like it was four years earlier, we would have won Michigan.” A Senate Intelligence Committee report on Russian interference efforts states the panel’s own two-year investigation could not find evidence that any votes were changed by...
