Cory Booker Joins Former 2020 Dems in Backing Biden as Endorsements Continue to Pile Up


Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) announced his intent to endorse former Vice President Joe Biden for president.

On Monday, Booker took to Twitter with a candid photo of himself with Biden. He also included a message about the Democratic presidential hopeful and shared his reason for supporting him.

Booker tweeted, “The answer to hatred & division is to reignite our spirit of common purpose. [Joe Biden] won’t only win – he’ll show there’s more that unites us than divides us. He’ll restore honor to the Oval Office and tackle our most pressing challenges. That’s why I’m proud to endorse Joe.”

Booker joins the list of former 2020 presidential candidates who have suspended their campaign to rally behind Biden.

As the Democratic primaries resume, Biden continues to rack up endorsements, as IJR previously reported about the suspension of multiple presidential campaigns during the week of Super Tuesday.

In a matter of days, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg all announced plans to drop out of the race and support Biden.

On Sunday, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) followed suit announcing her endorsement of Biden. She took to Twitter with a video message and a tweet endorsing the Democratic front-runner.

Harris tweeted, “This morning, I announced I’m endorsing Joe Biden for president because we need someone who reflects the decency and dignity of the American people and who fights for those whose voices are too often ignored.”

In the wake of Biden’s endorsement surge, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has offered his take on the primaries. During an interview, Sanders blamed “corporate media” after Super Tuesday.

He also attributed Biden’s ties to former President Barack Obama for his popularity among African American voters.

Sanders previously said, “There has not been a campaign, I think, that has been having to deal with the kind of venom we’re seeing from some in the corporate media.”
