Cory Booker Suspends Presidential Campaign Amidst Fundraising Woes and Weak Polling Numbers

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) officially suspended his presidential campaign on Monday after consistently lagging behind top contenders in the polls and failing to raise enough money to be a serious candidate.

Booker did not qualify for the seventh debate of Democrat presidential hopefuls, which is scheduled to take place tomorrow, because of his low polling numbers. Polls have also shown that Booker is likely to perform poorly in the Iowa caucus, which is only weeks away. In lieu of this bad news, Booker has decided to suspend his campaign.

“It’s with a full heart that I share this news — I’ve made the decision to suspend my campaign for president,” Booker wrote to his supporters in an email. “It was a difficult decision to make, but I got in this race to win, and I’ve always said I wouldn’t continue if there was no longer a path to victory.”
