U.S. Senator Cory Booker launched a set of New Hampshire stops this weekend in his first visit to the state since formally announcing his presidential campaign in early February.
“I believe there’s nothing we can’t do if we do it together. We may not be able to beat back every bigot or hate-mongering in our country, but there is good people in America that are being divided, that are being cut up, being pitted against each other,” Booker said at a town-hall style event in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Saturday. “We need an election victory, yes, but the larger campaign for our country is bigger than this one election.”
In addition to the town hall event, Booker attended a house party hosted by former Connecticut State Sen. Chris Meier on Saturday. On Sunday, the candidate had three events—a second house party, a meet and greet and an event the New Hampshire Young Democrats at an arcade in Manchester.
“Great event with the Senator. Your weekend looked amazing. Booker is setting the bar,” New Hampshire State Rep. Cole Riel (D-Goffstown), who tweeted that he beat the senator at “Pac-Man.”
Booker New Hampshire trip will conclude Monday morning after a house party hosted by State Sen. Cindy Rosenwald (D-Nashua).
