Cory Booker on 2020 Run: Ask Me After Midterms
New Jersey Democrat Sen. Cory Booker put off – temporarily – speculation that he is preparing for a potential 2020 presidential run, saying he’ll say more after the November midterm elections.
Over the weekend, Booker appeared at multiple speaking events throughout his home state as Democrats battle to keep the seat of ousted Sen. Robert Menendez and vie for congressional control.
“Is there any chance that you would run for president?” a woman in a parking lot asked Booker after one appearance. “I’m honored, but I’m focused on the midterms first,” he said. “I’ll talk to you about it after the election.”
