Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) has had some difficulty getting the attention some expected him to get since declaring his run for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. His fundraising efforts so far have netted $5 million, far less than the other major Democrats and even less than South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has raised 40% more at $7.1 million.
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) leads the money race at $19.2 million followed by Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) at $12 million and Beto O’Rourke at $9.1 million.

It’s not surprising Cory Booker hasn’t been able to get traction. He has no real message. He’s pushing the idea that he’s a fighter, which was likely intended to give him a reputation of being able to brawl with President Trump, but that’s not a winning message with progressives.
To get into the game among the hyper-leftist progressive base, Booker will have to start emulating the poll leaders in his rhetoric. He has no chance of being able to win in the moderate wing of the party with either Joe Biden or Michael Bloomberg likely running in that lane.
The other side of the story is the growing popularity of Pete Buttigieg. The South Bend mayor has been getting a ton of attention from mainstream media because most of his attributes are proper counters to the President. In their view, he has more of the appropriate boxes checked. Meanwhile, Booker’s only properly checked box is being a minority.
“The only Democrat who’s reported and earned less money than Booker is entrepreneur Andrew Yang, who earned $1.7 million from 80,000 donors.” – Nikki Schwab
For Booker to have any chance of making an impact, he’s going to have to make some waves by attacking some people, and not just President Trump. He has to start hitting the Republicans any way he can if he’s going to get in the race.
