We’re inching closer to the 2020 President election, and sadly the closer we get, the more candidate will drop off.
Today, January 13, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker has officially suspended his campaign. The day before the next Democratic debate, being held in Iowa, which he failed to meet qualifications for.
The announcement came many ways including on Instagram and Twitter.
It’s with a full heart that I share this news—I’m suspending my campaign for president.
To my team, supporters, and everyone who gave me a shot—thank you. I am so proud of what we built, and I feel nothing but faith in what we can accomplish together. pic.twitter.com/Fxvc549vlJ

Donlad Trump did not miss a beat, posting his feelings on Booker’s drop.
Really Big Breaking News (Kidding): Booker, who was in zero polling territory, just dropped out of the Democrat Presidential Primary Race. Now I can rest easy tonight. I was sooo concerned that I would someday have to go head to head with him!

It’s with a full heart that I share this news—I’ve made the hard decision to suspend my campaign for president. I’ve said throughout this race that this election is not just a referendum on Donald Trump. It’s a referendum on who we are and who we must be to each other. And over the past year, I’ve seen the very best of who we can be. To my team, supporters, and everyone who gave me a shot—thank you. I am so proud of what we built, and I feel nothing but faith in what we can accomplish together.
