Newark NJ, well its official Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) announced today that he is running for president in 2020.

The New Jersey Democrat is known primary for his antics during the Supreme Court nomination hearing ­bizarrely claiming “this is the closest I’ll get to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.”

Senator Booker ,often referred to as Senator Twitter and former Newark, N.J., mayor made the announcement on the first day of Black History Month. 

“The history of our nation is defined by collective action; by interwoven destinies of slaves and abolitionists; of those born here and those who chose America as home; of those who took up arms to defend our country, and those who linked arms to challenge and change it,” Booker said in a video released Friday morning.

“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,” he said.

“I’m Cory Booker and I’m running for president of the United States of America,” he added. 

Booker’s announcement has been highly anticipated as he joins what is expected to be a crowded field of Democratic contenders against President Trump.

  1. Booker and Schumer ain’t no rumor !

  2. Oh lordy, now Aronsohn will be all bonered up

  3. At least the junior senator will get 2 votes – one for him and one for his massive ego. Thank Crisp Crispie for not appointing a senator when given the golden opportunity, and allowing Sen. Sparticus to win with a special election.

  4. Him and his big mouth.

  5. How’s t-bone
