Cory Booker Submits Documentation To Join First Primary Debate

Cory Booker’s 2020 campaign has officially submitted the required documentation to certify that he qualifies for the first Democratic presidential campaign debates. Because of the massive Democratic candidate field, the Democratic National Committee has set certain standards for candidates to appear in the debates, including having at least 65,000 individual donors to their campaign and to reach a certain threshold in national polls of the candidates.

“I’m running for president to build a more fair and just nation for everyone, and I’m excited to get on that debate stage in Miami and make my case to the American people,” said Booker. Although his campaign started off strong, his polling has cratered in recent months as more recognized names like Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders dominate the airwaves. Booker hopes that the debate stage will provide him greater coverage and allow him to sell his candidacy directly to Democratic voters.

Dozens of polls held over the past two months have shown Booker to gain 5% or less support nationally from registered voters. In running for president, the New Jersey Senator is seeking to continue what has been a meteoric political rise for him, with some comparing his ascendancy to that of former president Barack Obama.
