Cory Booker, who dropped his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination on January 13, has $53,551 cash-on-hand in his U.S. Senate campaign account.

Now back in New Jersey and running for re-election, Booker has been raising money at a furious pace – numbers that won’t be revealed until his 2nd quarter report is filed with the Federal Election Commission.

In the final three months of last year, Booker for Senate raised $28 and spent $21,083.

Booker’s re-election campaign spent $9,716,314 in 2019, most of through a complicated series of refunds and transfers to fund his presidential bid.  He had raised $8,544,344 for his campaign for the presidency.

Booker faces Lawrence Hamm, a progressive activist and former Newark school board member, in the Democratic primary.

Six Republicans are seeking the nomination to challenge Booker in the general election.
