State Representative Amy Nielsen was the first Iowa legislator to endorse Cory Booker for president. -promoted by Laura Belin
Last night in the third Democratic candidate debate, we saw a lot of candidates get lost in the fray, getting distracted by what divides our party rather than what unites us.
But there was one candidate who rose above the chaos, Cory Booker. That’s the kind of leadership we need if we’re going to bring this country together to defeat Donald Trump and heal the pain and division he has inflicted.
Senator Booker showed America what a President Booker would look like. Well thought out policies rooted in evidence based research, someone with a proven history of success working with uncommon allies, a calm and collected personality that doesn’t need to tear other people down, and let’s not forget the dad jokes. Cory is laser-focused on the issues because he knows too many Americans are suffering, and these so-called purity tests that distract us from urgently solving the most pressing issues of our time are a privilege we can’t afford.
We’re not going to beat Trump if we’re divided. Our party and our candidates are strongest when we unite around our shared values and dedicate ourselves to the fundamentals of winning campaigns: organizing and activating as many Americans as possible to get behind our movement.
Cory Booker has been going about the real business of building a strong ground team here in Iowa, listening to voters whether they are Democrats or Republicans, farmers or moms in the suburbs, and helping to build a stronger Democratic party brick by brick. It’s not sexy, it doesn’t grab headlines, but it’s what Iowans know. Hard work and authenticity win the race, and most importantly, it wins caucuses.
