Jersey-tied super PAC backing Booker launching Iowa ads

By David Wildstein, November 29 2019 6:41 pm

A new super PAC backing Cory Booker for the Democratic presidential nomination will spend about $200,000 in Iowa starting on Monday.

The independent expenditure will include a TV ad broadcast in multiple Iowa media markets, targeted digital ads and a live call program aimed as likely caucusgoers.

“Iowa Democrats want to support a leader with a vision for our country’s future, and a Rhodes Scholar mayor is exactly what we need — but Cory Booker is the only one with a record of delivering real change both in Washington and in his own community,” said Phil Swibinski, a United We Win spokesman. “Our party needs to rally around a candidate with a progressive platform and a pragmatic, results oriented outlook in order to beat Donald Trump. Cory Booker exemplifies those qualities better than any other candidate, whether they’re a fellow Rhodes Scholar mayor or not.”

Donors and organizers of the super PAC have not been identified, although the group has strong ties to Booker’s home state of New Jersey.

Booker, a U.S. Senator from New Jersey, opposes super PACs.

Another super PAC organized to boost Booker’s national campaign, Dream United, announced this week that they were closing after raising about $1 million.

The New York Times first reported the creation of the super PAC.
