Another Democratic Senator has thrown his hat into the ring for the race to be president, as Cory Booker became the latest to announce his candidacy yesterday.
Booker, who is a New Jersey Senator, confirmed his plans to run for president yesterday in a video message posted on his Twitter account, as NPR reported. In the statement, Booker issued a unifying rallying cry.
"We are better when we help each other. I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind; where parents can put food on the table; where there are good paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood; where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame."
Booker is expected to make a series of prominent media appearances today to launch his campaign. Appearances on The Tom Joyner Morning Show, ABC's The View, and Univision's Despierta America are all believed to have been scheduled.
