Senator Corey Booker announced today, January 13th, that he is dropping out of the race for president. In an email to his supporters he candidly revealed
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
Senator Booker’s notice comes just over a month after Senator Kamala Harris revealed that she would have to quit her presidential campaign for the same reason – a lack of funds.
Senator Harris wrote in an email to supporters,
my campaign for president simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue.
I’m saddened to hear that both of these candidates were forced to drop out of the race due to a lack of funding, meanwhile a billionaire tyrant is running our country!
