Cory Booker scored a potentially advantageous position in the next Democratic presidential debate. He’ll appear on the second night, along with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
That gives Booker a much-needed opportunity for a break-out moment against Biden, who leads in nearly every national and early state poll, and the surging Harris.
Booker and Harris will flank Biden on the debate stage, which also includes Julian Castro, Kirsten Gillibrand, Michael Bennet, Andrew Yang, Tulsi Gabbard, Jay Inslee and Bill de Blasio.
The first night will feature a face-off between Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Beto O’Rourke, Amy Klobuchar and the rest, including New Jersey native John Delaney.
The Booker campaign this morning released endorsements from more than 40 activists and community leaders in New Hampshire, including Joanne St. John.
“I came away from his speech this weekend in Nashua inspired and ready to take action. Sharp, smart, passionate and driven, Cory’s vision for our country is ambitious and forward-thinking,” said St. John, who played a statewide role on Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign. “He is a proven fighter who has taken on tough challenges and gotten results.”
