Jon Bon Jovi: Cory Booker is the ‘Right Leader’ to Unite Americans
80s rocker shows support for lawmaker’s struggling presidential campaign
2020 presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker has found support from the singer on Bon Jovi as his struggling campaign tries to stay afloat.
According to a press statement on Saturday, Jovi said Booker is “the right leader for this moment,” asserting the candidate has the ability to bring people together.
Unlike other liberal leftist musicians, the 1980s 'living on a prayer' singer did not bash President Donald Trump but instead praised Booker's 'skill set.'
“I believe we need to respond with a strong call for unity and a renewed sense of shared purpose. I can’t think of anyone better than Cory Booker to rise to the challenge,” Jovi said.
New Jersey native Jovi also cited the lawmaker’s devotion to preventing “offshore drilling,” as well as his “enacting historic criminal justice reform.”
On September 21, Booker's campaign published a memo asking readers to help raise $1.7 million in the next ten days to keep him in the race.
According to a Medium post authored by Booker’s campaign manager Addisu Demissie, Booker might not be in the race “much longer” if donors fail to raise $1.7 million by 11:59 p.m. by the end of September.
In July, Booker (D-NJ) began pushing his radical new "birthright" bill that aims to give thousands of dollars of taxpayer money to every baby born in America.

The “baby bonds” bill wants to give up to $46,215 of taxpayer money to everyone born in the US as a “birthright.”
Booker is pushing the proposal along with Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) - the bottom rung on the ladder of AOC's so-called "Squad" of far-left Democrats.
Also in July, Booker confessed he had to resist urges of violence against President Donald Trump.
The candidate admitted he felt like punching the president during an appearance on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers."
The Democrat mocked the president’s physique, adding that his “testosterone” sometimes makes him want to take a swing at Trump.“
Donald Trump is a guy who, you understand, he hurts you, and my testosterone sometimes makes me want to feel like punching him, which would be bad for this elderly out-of-shape man that he is if I did that,” Booker told the audience.
