Senator Cory Booker has announced he will continue his campaign as a Democratic candidate in the 2020 presidential race after his campaign team met its goal to raise $1.7 million.
The New Jersey Senator announced his continued participation in the presidential campaign to his supporters and followers on Twitter on September 30. The news comes just a few days after his staff let supporters know he would be dropping out of the race if enough money was not raised by the end of September.
“I have some incredible news, team. Last night at 8:16 p.m., we reached our $1.7 million goal. I’m so grateful that at the most critical moment of this campaign, thousands of people in all 50 states came together to give us the boost we needed,” Booker
