Cory Booker says he has qualified for the third and fourth Democratic presidential debates this fall, meeting the criteria set by the Democratic National Committee.
Booker, a two-term U.S. Senator from New Jersey, has now reached the necessary 130,000 individual campaign donor requirement, He has also polled well enough in national and early primary polls – New Hampshire, Iowa and South Carolina – to earn his place on the debate stage.
“We’re building this campaign the right way, brick by brick from the grassroots up, and we’re seeing the results of that strategy as we continue to build momentum,” said campaign manager Addisu Demissie. “We’re grateful to the tens of thousands of Americans who have chipped in to ensure Cory’s voice will be heard in the Democratic debates this fall, and who believe in Cory’s uplifting vision of building a more fair and just country for everyone.”
Booker becomes the 6th Democrat to qualify.
According to the Booker campaign, More than ¼ of Cory 2020’s unique donors have become donors since the June debate, just one month ago. The campaign added its second 65,000 unique donors in less than half the time as the first.
