(Tea Party PAC) – Another Democrat dropping out of the primary race for president before the primaries had even begun.
Another line of pathetic excuses all designed to obscure from the fact that they were utterly uninteresting.
On Monday, Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) announced he was finally dropping out of the 2020 race.
He put up a good fight, you’ve got to give it to him. He was never a remotely viable candidate (who on earth is going to elect an unmarried vegan who doesn’t understand the plot of the movie ‘Sparticus’ to be POTUS?).
For a while now, no one even seemed to remember he was running. No one knew what his platform was (other than shaming meat-eaters), and no one believed he was really dating Rosario Dawson.
Nonetheless, he had to come up with something to tell his supporters (all three of them) that didn’t admit he was a terrible candidate with no chance at the White House.
So he’s blaming Trump. Or rather…the fact he’s being impeached.
In an email to his supporters on Monday, Booker listed several reasons why he was dropping out of the race, including the fact that the impending impeachment trial for President Donald Trump would require him to be in Washington DC for the trial, as he is still a sitting senator, after all.
That pesky day job.
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.
Our campaign has reached the point where we need more money to scale up and continue building a campaign that can win — money we don’t have, and money that is harder to raise because I won’t be on the next debate stage and because the urgent business of impeachment will rightly be keeping me in Washington.
So I’ve chosen to suspend my campaign now, take care of my wonderful staff, and give you time to consider the other strong choices in the field.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is expected to transmit the articles of impeachment passed by the House on Dec. 18 to the Senate this week, after a long delay and despite claiming for weeks that the matter was urgent.
Booker failed to qualify for the upcoming Democrat debate in Des Moines, Iowa, on Tuesday evening. He also failed to qualify for the most recent debate in Los Angeles in December, protesting at that time that the Democratic presidential field had more “billionaires than black people.” He also recently criticized the Iowa debate for its “lack of diversity.”
The Democrat debate stage will feature six candidates who managed to meet the polling and fundraising criteria. All six are white.
