Sen. Cory Booker announced Monday he will stay in the 2020 Democratic presidential race after his campaign met a self-imposed fundraising goal of $1.7 million.
“We blew past it last night. It’s been the best sort of period of fundraising we’ve had for the campaign,” Booker told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day.” “We still have until midnight tonight. So we’re going to hopefully run through the tape and we hope to actually end this quarter if we can at $2 million raised during this period.”
