U.S. Senator Bob Menendez

“I know I share my genuine sadness with millions of Americans who believe that Cory’s unwavering message of fairness, faith and coming together in common purpose is exactly the path our nation needs to heal and move forward. I am also incredibly proud of our Senator and my friend for running an inclusive, inspiring campaign of ideas, grounded in principle, and fueled by the fight for what’s right.

Cory’s ideas and ideals have undoubtedly left a mark on this race, becoming our national voice on criminal justice reform and putting forth the most sweeping and aggressive plan to attack the epidemic of gun violence destroying lives and communities.

His leadership and energy is invaluable to the Senate and to the people of New Jersey. I’m looking forward to hitting the campaign trail for Senator Booker’s re-election this fall and to continuing our work together for years to come.”

New Jersey Democratic State Committee Chairman John Currie 

“Cory Booker ran an inspiring and courageous campaign for President. His bold, progressive agenda made all of us in New Jersey extremely proud to be represented by him every day in Washington. Although his campaign for President has ended, Cory’s ideas and his willingness to challenge the status quo will live on throughout this primary and beyond. I wholeheartedly endorse his re-election to the U.S. Senate this November. We are extraordinarily fortunate to have such an outstanding representative fighting for us all.”

Senate President Steve Sweeney

“It’s unfortunate for the country that Senator Booker has dropped out of the presidential race. His message of inclusion and compassion was a much needed, positive force in the most important presidential race of my lifetime. His voice helped shape the conversation around race and unity throughout the campaign and across the country.

While his presidential run has concluded, I look forward to seeing what he is able to accomplish in the years to come and I am confident his influence and vision will continue to lead New Jersey and the nation.”
