Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is ready to end his presidential campaign unless he can raise $1.7 million from his supporters by Sept. 30, which marks the closing of the third fundraising quarter.
“The next 10 days will determine whether Cory Booker can stay in this race and compete to win the nomination,” wrote Addisu Demissie, who works as Booker’s presidential campaign manager, in a memo released to supporters and staff members.
“We need to maximize support from our current donor base, and we need to seal the deal with supporters who like Cory but have been waiting to contribute because of an assumption that they can wait until later,” Demissie added.
Demissie made it abundantly clear that the campaign was in panic mode, and unless Booker can gain momentum quickly, he would likely miss the threshold needed to qualify for the next Democratic presidential debate and bow out from the race.
“I want to be clear: This isn’t an end-of-quarter stunt or another one of those memos from a campaign trying to spin the press,” he wrote. “This is a real, unvarnished look under the hood of our operation at a level of transparency unprecedented in modern presidential campaigns.”
Booker even validated the concerns by addressing the turmoil within his campaign on Saturday morning.
“It’s an unusual move for a campaign like ours to be this transparent, but there can be no courage without vulnerability. I want people to see where we are and understand that we have a pathway to victory, but I can’t walk it alone,” he said.
Booker hoped to usurp the “hope and change” mantle from former President Barack Obama in 2020, but times have changed within the Democratic Party. The radical socialist wing of the Party has taken hold, and Booker – who once sold himself as a reformer who would work with Republicans to solve problems facing America – has failed to capture their support in a crowded field.
For example, Booker once appeared at a Devos-funded debate 19 years ago where he unequivocally endorsed school choice in a contentious debate.
“I applaud Charter Schools. I know they are working,” Booker explained to a hostile audience. His relationship with the Devos family grew from there, before he did a convenient about-face.
He has reversed his stance completely on the campaign trail, saying that “the evidence has become clear that vouchers do not help — and in fact, hurt — the cause of educational equity.”
Booker’s perceived inauthenticity has resulted in him receiving a great deal of criticism from both sides of the aisle.
“Now that it is politically inconvenient, he has distanced himself from the issue and those who helped launch his political career,” said William E. Oberndorf, who was chairman of the American Education Reform Council when Booker and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos both served on the board.
“Cory once told me that his father used to say to him, ‘Never forget the girl who brought you to the dance.’ I can only conclude that Cory not only forgot one of the girls who brought him to the dance, he missed his . . . moment to stand up for an issue he always said he believed in,” Oberndorf added.
Booker will likely be leaving the dance soon, and joining losers such as New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and California Congressman Eric Swalwell who have already bowed out of the presidential race.
REVOLT: Angry Conservatives Threaten to Boycott Georgia Senate Races Unless Full Vote Audit Takes Place
They have had enough of the feckless GOP.
There is a groundswell of grassroots conservatives who are refusing to help the Republican candidates win in the Georgia senate run-off elections unless the state Republican Party gets serious about the recount and vote audit.
Donald Trump Jr., Students for Trump founder Ryan Fournier and American Greatness senior fellow Ned Ryun are trying to head off this anti-GOP revolt at the pass.
That is NONSENSE.

Every GOP voter in Georgia MUST vote for Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue on January 5th.
There is TOO much at stake to not vote.
If we lose the Senate, we lose everything.
— Ryan Fournier (@RyanAFournier) November 23, 2020
Folks, don’t be idiots. Vote for both Loeffler and Perdue. You might not like it, you might even think it’s a crap sandwich. But trust me: it’s a heck of a lot better than whatever you would get with. Democratic Senate run by Schumer. Trust me. https://t.co/gLzDf73oG2

However, enraged conservatives are not having it. They are sick and tired of their elected officials refusing to stand strong and demand electoral accountability in the aftermath of third-world style rigging caused by rapacious and crooked Democrats.
You just told me support the GOP or I’m an idiot then tell me to trust you in the same sentence. When the GOP wakes up and DOES something about election fraud and demands audits in multiple states then I will support them. But they aren’t doing a damn thing but sit on the asses!

Whatever shit storm you think is coming from letting 50 years of communism fester in our society, buckle up and start preparing for it.

Where is the support? I don't see any but capitulation from Chris Christie and others who have given-up. GOP and RNC are such quitters. I hate weakness!!
— Q_Element (@Q_Element) November 23, 2020
Im not voting for them they abandoned Trump and didnt even push for signature matching. Theyre rinos in disguise
— Rick V (@RickV_1) November 23, 2020
You expect people to vote using the same mechanism that just stole their vote ? Isn't it the definition of insanity?
— OM (@beachgirlCA) November 23, 2020
This makes ZERO sense. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are DEEP STATE and CANNOT BE TRUSTED.
True Patriots BOYCOTT the Georgia Runoffs.

Won't back the @GOP when 90% of them refuse to fight for your father who got them elected in the first place. Either the whole party comes together and fights this, or the party dies. Sick of cowards.

As a proud Georgian if RINOs Loeffler and Perdue won’t stand up for the REAL AMERICANS and STOP THE STEAL I will be writing in someone who will – Donald Trump! MSM can’t deny a red wave of Trump votes carrying him into the Senate!!

Big League Politics has reported on the cavalcade of anomalies that have occurred in Georgia, while the Republicans in charge of the state, led by Gov. Brian Kemp, are content to look the other way and excuse massive fraud:
A Fulton County, Georgia woman is describing handling a “pristine” batch of ballots that were marked “98%” of the time for Joe Biden in election recount duties, describing the suspicious phenomenon in a sworn affidavit.
Susan Voyles identifies herself as a participant in Georgia’s post-election recount in the affidavit, filed in litigation against Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger by Trump campaign attorney Lin Wood.
Voyles describes seeing ballots that differed considerably from the other ballots she was entrusted to count in the remix.
Voyles describes the batch of ballots as unusual in their texture and level of handling, and that she estimates 98% of them were cast for Joe Biden. Voyles even speculates that these ballots could’ve been processed through a ballot-marking device!
Voyles earlier described election recount supervisors as tasking them to process ballots in a “selective” fashion. Boxes of absentee ballots were signed by no one, without markings one might expect the Georgia Secretary of State to outfit absentee ballots with.
Another witness describes viewing election workers count 500 straight ballots for Joe Biden, all of which were marked with perfect black bubbles.
Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell has pledged that the campaign’s legal filing in Georgia will be “biblical,” implying a great deal of evidence in regards to election discrepancies.
The Trump campaign has demanded a new recount after the first one was little more than a perfunctory cherade.
“Today, the Trump campaign filed a petition for recount in Georgia,” the campaign said in a statement on Saturday. “We are focused on ensuring that every aspect of Georgia State Law and the U.S. Constitution are followed so that every legal vote is counted.”
The Republican Party may have a mutiny on their hands if they do not get serious about stopping voter fraud and do so very quickly. With their nation hanging by a thread and the constitution at stake, conservatives have no more tolerance for RINOs among their ranks.
