At some point, running a terrible campaign with abysmal, anti-American policies catches up with you. In the case of 2020 Democrat Cory Booker, the chickens have come home to roost sooner rather than later. The entirety of Booker’s presidential campaign has entailed support for far-left measures, such as mandatory gun buybacks, Medicare-for-All, and raising the taxes of hardworking Americans.
Yesterday morning, Booker went on Twitter and published a series of posts which essentially confirm that his campaign is pretty much out of funds. Booker also made very clear that if he fails to raise $1.7 million dollars by the end of the third quarter (September 30), he won’t be able to afford to run for president.
These new developments about the status of Booker’s 2020 presidential campaign aren’t really that shocking. Although he’s managed to make all three of the primary debates, Booker has still maintained status as a low-polling candidate. After months of campaigning for office, his bid for the presidency has all but failed to generate enough funds to stay afloat.
A Closer Look at Booker’s Plea for Funds
Booker’s plea for campaign funds comes as multiple other candidates, including Bill de Blasio, Kirsten Gillibrand, John Hickenlooper, have dropped out of the race. Like Booker, the aforementioned former candidates bowed out of the 2020 election after failing to gain real momentum.
In Booker’s first two tweets, he notes the urgency of his campaign raising money. Noting that he can’t “walk [this pathway to victory] alone,” the 2020 Democrat lets Americans know that his pleas for money aren’t a cash grab.
Additional tweets after the preceding two provide a deeper focus on Booker’s need for campaign money. He notes that without raising at least $1.7 million dollars, maintaining as a presidential candidate won’t be doable. Booker not only attempts to reach his supporters but also Democrats who are undecided but “believe the Democratic field should include someone like [him.]”
In Booker’s own words:
Finally, Booker wrapped up his thread of tweets by including a link for Democrats to donate and asking for “whatever [money] you can [donate]” for the sake of his presidential campaign.
The End of Cory 2020
Whenever a presidential candidate gets to the point of tweeting out that their campaign is desperate for funds to make it past their third quarter, it’s a very clear sign of the end for them. If Booker doesn’t drop out before next week, he won’t make it past the second week of October.
At the end of the day, there’s nothing remarkable about Booker’s campaign for president. He’s just another radical Democrat who favors “buying back” the property of law-abiding citizens and shoving socialism down people’s throats while calling it Medicare-for-All.
This is not unlike many other Democrat candidates on the left-wing, which explains why Booker’s presidential run has been an utter failure. It’s hard to stand out and really gain momentum when you’re no different than countless other running candidates.
