A New Jersey Democrat who is considering a 2020 presidential told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he is heterosexual during an interview last week.
“I’m heterosexual,” Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) reportedly said. ”Every candidate should run on their authentic self, tell their truth, and more importantly, or mostly importantly, talk about their vision for the country.
According to the magazine, his status as a 49-year-old single man has raised questions about his sexuality. The broader context of the interview was Booker’s potential run for president in the next election. The magazine noted that America has not elected an unmarried president since 1884.
“America is accustomed to not just a chief executive who leads the government, but a First Family that rounds out the ceremonial and symbolic aspects of the job,” the magazine said. “Spouses and their children can become national figures in their own rights, and often soften a candidate’s image.”
In past election campaigns, Booker’s mother and brother have played a prominent role usually filled by a spouse.
Early polling numbers among Democratic voters indicate that Booker is tracking well behind several other candidates. Big League Politics has reported that failed U.S. Senate candidate from Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, along with former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) appear to be the favorites so far. Among the less popular candidates are Booker and Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
Former San Antonio Mayor and Obama Administration housing czar Julian Castro has formed an exploratory committee for a presidential run, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) has said that she, too, is considering running.
For now, Booker has not officially committed to running for the nation’s highest office, and instead he is focused on relaxing for the Christmas holiday with his family and friends.
“I have a pause during the holidays which is going to be a really great time to meet with family and friends and really start to put some focus on whether to run for president or not,” he said.

POLL: Trump’s Pick Doug Collins is Beating Georgia RINO Senator Kelly Loeffler by 23 Points in New Poll
This is great news for Georgians who want an “America First” Senator.
A recent poll has indicated that Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) is crushing incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) by 23 points, as the unelected appointee is hemorrhaging support after being accused of insider trading.
Battleground Connect conducted a survey throughout the state of Georgia from March 30 to April 1, asking about which candidate the respondents support in this year’s special election for the U.S. Senate. In addition to Loeffler and Collins, respondents also mentioned at least five other individuals as their preferred candidate in the race.
Collins devastated Loeffler in the new poll, receiving 36 percent of the support from Georgia voters. Loeffler only received 13 percent of the support. In the previous poll, Collins had a mere eight point lead over Loeffler. He now has accumulated 70 percent of the support from Republican voters, compared to Loeffler’s paltry 20 percent.
In a comparison of Collins’ level of support against the leading Democrat in the race, Collins beats Democrat Raphael Warnock by a margin of 49 percent to 36 percent. Loeffler is actually losing to Warnock by a margin of 40 percent to 41 percent in the poll.
Loeffler’s unfavorable ratings have grown to an incredible 55 percent, with Georgia voters rejecting the former Mitt Romney super-donor. This may be due to a recent scandal in which Loeffler was exposed for selling stock after receiving privileged information about the coronavirus pandemic at an exclusive Senate briefing.
Big League Politics reported on Loeffler’s dirty dealings that have been compared to insider trading by many observers:
Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), who was appointed to her post undemocratically against the wishes of President Donald Trump, has been revealed for selling stock shortly after a private briefing on the coronavirus.
She and her husband sold off a stunning seven figures worth of stock options after the Senate Health Committee held a private meeting with all Senators to brief them about the growing coronavirus epidemic.
“Appreciate today’s briefing from the President’s top health officials on the novel coronavirus outbreak. These men and women are working around the clock to keep our country safe and healthy,” Loeffler wrote in a tweet about the briefing at the time.
Loeffler dumped stocks worth between $50,001 and $100,000 in Resideo Technologies following the hearing. The stock for Resideo has dropped by half since that point, as the Dow Jones has tanked by losing roughly 10,000 points.
She also made a buy of between $100,000 and $250,000 in Citrix, a tech firm specializing in teleworking that has bucked the market during its downturn due to the increased demand for remote networking because of coronavirus.
The residents of Georgia are getting to know Loeffler, who was a relative unknown before her appointment to the Senate, and they do not like what they seeing. Collins is the prohibitive favorite heading into November’s special election.
