Update: In its first press release, the newly formed Booker campaign has released a list of top members of its team.
And predictably, Booker has said that "economic justice" is going to be the focus for his campaign.
New Jersey Senator and former Newark Mayor Cory "Spartacus" Booker just made it official: He will be joining Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand in seeking the 2020 Democratic nomination.
According to CNBC, Booker officially launched his presidential campaign early Friday, a move that had been widely expected. In preparation, Booker has spent recent weeks crisscrossing key primary states. Booker made the announcement on Feb. 1, the first day of Black History Month. The announcement follows reports that Booker had been calling members of the Congressional Black Caucus and asking for their support.
