Thoughts On Cory Booker Ending His Presidential Campaign

There can only be one Presidential nominee. That being said, it is a natural occurrence that during the election season, the number of candidates will slowly be whittled down until one becomes the nominee.

Last night, Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) announced that he was ending his Presidential campaign.

To be honest, I was not sure if he was the right person for the job. But I admired his courage, his tenacity and his love of this country.

But, I am also concerned about the lack of diversity among the leading Democratic contenders. As I wrote when Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) dropped out of the race, it is becoming appalling clear that the next Democratic nominee will be caucasian.

America is known as the melting pot of the world. Our diversity is our brand. It’s time that we lived up to that brand, especially in the halls of power.
