BOOKER BEAT

Booker vies with other 2020 Dems for votes from women of color

Wednesday, the Booker campaign was at the campus of Texas Southern University, one of 10 Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the state of Texas. She The People is a national organization with the mission of building political power and amplifying the voices of, particularly, women of color. The group organized a presidential forum on the campus that brought together eight of the men and women running for the Democratic nomination for president, including Sen. Cory Booker.

Questions ranged from foreign policy to gender and economic equality. In addition to Booker, some of the high profile candidates included Beto O’Rourke, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Julian Castro and Kamala Harris.

Booker flies next to South Carolina — an important early vote state. He has events Thursday, Friday and Saturday, at the end of which he will wrap up his 2 week “Justice For All” tour.
