Cory Booker getting everyone pumped up for the future.

Booker is a U.S. senator from New Jersey, who is known for being the Mayor of Newark and the first African American U.S. senator from New Jersey. He is viewed as one of the most gifted orators in the field, running on a politics of uplift that recalls President Obama’s 2008 campaign.

His national polling average is 1%, and his news coverage ranking is #9.

Major Policy Points:

  • Criminal justice reform
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Proposed a government-run saving program called “baby bonds” to curb inequality

He has one of the most liberal voting records of any senator, but has potentially damning ties to Wall Street and Big Pharma.   

I believe that we can build a country where no on is forgotten, no one is left behind… where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame”

— Cory Booker
