U.S. Senator Bob Menendez today strongly endorsed Cory Booker for president.

“He is someone who is willing to reach out to the other side but will fiercely fight on principle,” Menendez said. “I think (he’s) someone who can unite this nation is just what the Democratic party needs in its candidate and what the nation needs.”

Menendez said he’s watched Booker’s rise from Newark councilman and mayor to serving in the United States Senate.

“(It’s) a  time for healing and bringing people in our country together – not red, not blue, but red, white and blue as a nation,” Menendez said.
