Gov. Phil Murphy will travel to Iowa next week to campaign for Cory Booker.

Murphy will spend Tuesday in Des Moines, spending the day meeting with local leaders and labor leaders.  He’ll end the day with Booker at a Happy Hour with Polk County Democrats at Cooney’s Tavern.

Booker received Murphy’s endorsement on the day he entered the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.  He was the first governor to pick sides in the 2020 presidential contest.

Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Ewing) will join Booker in Iowa on Sunday and Monday.

The three-term congresswoman and former New Jersey Democratic state chairwoman, will begin the day in Cedar Rapids at what is being billed as the “Cory 2020 Hall of Fame Kickoff.”  Watson Coleman will follow that up with an appearance at the Iowa Democratic Party Hall of Fame event.

Booker has the near-unanimous support of his home state.

In addition to Murphy and Watson Coleman Booker has won the endorsements of U.S. Senator Bob Menendez and the entire New Jersey Democratic House delegation, all 21 New Jersey Democratic county chairs, Senate President Steve Sweeney, Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, and dozens of other key elected officials and party leaders.

Tonight, New Jersey’s full Democratic congressional delegation will host a fundraiser for Booker in New Jersey.
