NEW JERSEY – (01-14-20) – Major LGBTQ ally Cory Booker has announced the end of his presidential campaign. Booker made the announcement on Monday and said that he would campaign and support the Democratic nominee.

“Today I’m suspending my campaign for president with the same spirit with which it began,” Booker said in a video released Monday morning. “It is my faith in us, my faith in us together as a nation, that we share common pain and common problems that can only be solved with a common purpose and a common cause. And so now I recommit myself to the work. I can’t wait to get back on the campaign trail and campaign as hard as I can for whoever is the eventual nominee and for candidates up and down the ballot.” said Booker.

Though he was praised for his uplifting message during his campaign and impressive fundraising numbers, he wasn’t able to qualify for Tuesday night’s Democratic debate in Des Moines because his polling numbers were not high enough.

Booker’s time in office as mayor of Newark, the U.S. Senate, and his presidential campaign, always supported and defended LGBTQ civil rights and protections. He was the only democratic presidential candidate to first say he would reverse president Trump’s transgender military ban if he became president.

Senator Corey Booker’s office confirmed to our newsroom that he plans to run for reelection to the Senate this year.  With $4,223,789 cash on hand from his presidential run, he is in good shape to retain his seat in the U.S. Senate.
