New Jersey Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker said President Trump's upcoming impeachment trial and other issues demanding his attention in Washington could be a "big, big blow" to his efforts to win next month's Iowa caucuses.
Booker told The Associated Press in an interview for its "Ground Game" podcast that his campaign's internal metrics indicate he would finish in a "pretty exciting place" in the February 3 caucuses, but his Senate responsibilities could hamper his ability to remain competitive.
"It's going to be a challenging four weeks into caucus for us where our strengths are going to be under assault, so to speak, from all the things going on in our country right now," he said. "Our weaknesses are going to be seen because, again, if we can't raise more money in this final stretch, we won't be able do the things that other campaigns with more money can do to really show presence."
Booker said his campaign is under "major pressure" to bring in donations, which would allow him to remain on the airwaves in the coming weeks if he cannot be in Iowa.
"We have real demanding things going on in Washington," he said. "I swore an oath to do this job and I'm going to do it."

* I’m only here for the jokes *
Farticus has zero chance in any State other than the State of Confusion.
Then he should enjoy it...................
Gory Booger’s campaign is a low blow.
Personal theory: Pelosi promised the Presidential candidates that she would sit on the impeachment resolution until after Super Tuesday in March, so that the Senator candidates wouldn’t have to sit through a prolonged Senate trial and miss the campaign trail.
Well gee I thought this whole impeachment thing was because he supposedly committed a “Crime” turns it out was all political to hurt him in 2020 which of course it WONT..meanwhile hey Cory, any statement about Jussie Smolletts info from google being sent to the feds..scared yet Cory?
Farticus should quit the campaign and go hang out with Tee-Bone....and Slow-Joe and Pop-Corn.
He’s a victim, I tell ya. A victim!!!
Blame Trump Syndrome (BTS). 1/2 of these D-listed primary candidates will blame Trump for their loss. I won’t argue with them as Trump will be re-elected and will be responsible for making all of them losers.
Should this nitwit Corey be using the phrase “big blow” under any circumstances?
That’s probably why Nasty Nancy is hanging on to them.
“bLOW”? I thought it was about Buttfag getting out of the race..
Id like to know who is writing Bookers jokes.
He’s still in the campaign? Democrats are still campaigning? Their clown show isn’t getting much coverage. President Trump Dominates the News. WINNING WINNING WINNING.
He hired that actress to be his beard just to avoid this kind of thing.
So says the guy polling at about 1.5% right now. He could only dream of a “big blow” like that.
Just sent T bone out to cover for you or whatever you called him
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAhahahahahahahahahahaha***snort**hahahaha*choke, choke**** giggle... heh.
Hard to tell if Spartacus is being serious. His campaign has been going nowhere for months. But its all Trumps fault. Got it.
