Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey has been grandstanding before TV cameras like a madman for weeks. During the Kavanaugh hearings, he had his ridiculous ‘Spartacus’ moment. Now he is trying to claim that he is not thinking about running for president in 2020. What a bad liar he is.
FOX News reports:
Cory Booker says he’s not thinking about 2020 run now, but maybe after midterms
Sen. Cory Booker might look like he’s prepping for a potential 2020 presidential run, but a recent stop in his home state of New Jersey is part of an effort to focus on the critical midterms – at least for now.
Over the weekend, Booker appeared at multiple speaking events throughout the Garden State, as Democrats battle to keep the seat of ousted Sen. Robert Menendez and vie for congressional control.
“My priority is here,” he said in an interview, according to The New York Times. “My priority is Menendez. My priority is flipping Congress seats at home. So we’re spending a lot of time raising money for folks, which is something that’s really needed. Going to lots of events.”
Booker’s upcoming schedule suggests a broader long-term agenda.
Booker is set to appear at the marquee Democratic fundraising banquet in Iowa on Oct. 6; there, he’ll also be keynote speaker. Later the month he will headline a Democratic event in South Carolina…
“Is there any chance that you would run for president?” a woman in a parking lot asked the senator, according to The Times.
“I’m honored, but I’m focused on the midterms first,” he said. “I’ll talk to you about it after the election.”
Whatever Cory. Everyone knows you and about thirty other Democrats are just dying to announce your 2020 runs.
