"Sen. Cory Booker's presidential campaign manager is warning in a memo to staff that the Democratic senator from New Jersey must raise an additional $1.7 million by the end of the third quarter of fundraising - just 10 days away - or the campaign will not have a 'legitimate long-term path forward, '" reports Fox News. He also said Booker doesn't want to stay in the race if there isn't a path to the nomination. Party nominees sometimes burst into the lead late in the process, as Democrat John F. Kerry did in 2004 and Republican John McCain in 2008.

Qualifying for the upcoming October Democratic debate isn't enough; Booker needs money to come in quickly, Demissie said.

Booker's campaign has invested early in ground game organizations in both Iowa and New Hampshire and said Friday night at an LGBTQ presidential forum in Iowa that the campaign's strategy from day one is to "win Iowa".

Cory Booker could be the next Democrat to drop out of the race for the presidential nomination.

A minima, certains défenseurs du climat et des "gilets" avaient prévu une rencontre à 09H00 place de la Madeleine à Paris. Les appels s'étaient multipliés pour une "convergence des luttes" entre " gilets jaunes " et militants pro-climat.

Booker only polled at 1% in the ABC News September poll.

Part of the problem, he said, is that Biden has been the favorite of moderates while Warren and Sanders are competing for the party's more progressive wing, and Booker - though well liked - is not seen as a clear alternative for either ideological camp.

Booker has been campaigning for almost nine months, but less than 3% of Democratic primary voters support him for president, according to a Real Clear Politics aggregate of national polls.

'If our campaign is not in a financial position to grow, he's not going to continue to consume resources and attention that can be used to focus on beating Donald Trump, which needs to be everyone's first priority in this election, ' Demissie wrote.

Two sources, who asked to remain anonymous to speak more freely, said it was no accident that the memo was leaked, and described it as an effort to spark a surge in fundraising over the next 10 days.

Money is typically what forces candidates out of a presidential contest.

During the second fundraising quarter of this year, between April and June, the Booker campaign raised $4.5 million and spent $5.3 million, trailing far behind top-tier candidates but ahead of some of the other candidates including Sen. "We're showing all signs and the metrics that we can win this state".
