Cory Booker today added his sixth endorsement from an Iowa state legislator.

State Rep. Heather Matson (D-Akeny) was named to the Des Moines Register “50 Most Wanted Democrats” after ousting five term Republican Kevin Koester last year.

Matson is a former vice chair of the Iowa Democratic Party and a former chair of Planned Parenthood Voters of Iowa.  She flipped a Republican suburban Des Moines legislative district in 2018.

“Cory Booker leads with passion, honesty, and a commitment to civic grace at a time when we need to be reminded of who we can be as a country,” Matson said.  “I support Cory because he inspires us to rise to the challenges we face as a nation and I think he is the candidate who will inspire Americans to believe in each other again.”

Booker is on his eighth campaign swing through Iowa this weekend.
