Cory Booker

U.S. Senator From New Jersey

Announced Feb. 1, 2019

Cory Booker announced his candidacy for the presidency on February 1, 2019.  Booker is the junior US Senator from New Jersey and has been since 2013.  Before that he was the 36th mayor of Newark, New Jersey (2006-2013).

 

However, his candidacy may be facing a rocky road since he is under fire for allegedly mishandling two $100 million donations from Facebook while he was the  mayor of Newark.  One of the donations was meant to be used to reform Newark’s public school system.

 

Politically, Booker is considered to be a social liberal and supports women’s rights, affirmative action, same-sex marriage, abortion rights, and single-payer health care. On foreign policy he has spoken out against military action without a clear plan and authorization from Congress. He supports scaling down military operations in Afghanistan and is against intervention in Syria. Despite these solidly Democratic positions, he does have one area of advocacy that most Democrats would consider to be a defect. He backed charter schools and vouchers when he was mayor.

 

Cory Anthony Booker was born on April 27, 1969, in Washington, DC but grew up in New Jersey.  He attended Stanford University and Yale Law School.  He also studied abroad at the University of Oxford on a Rhodes Scholarship. He has never been married but is considered to be a very eligible bachelor.  He describes himself as a “straight male” who is looking for someone to settle down with.  He is a vegetarian, exercises regularly, does not drink, “and has no known vices”  (Wikipedia).

Kamala Harris

US Senator from CA

Announced Jan. 21, 2019

Kamala Harris, a US senator from California (2017-present), announced her intention to run for president on January 21, 2019.  Before being elected to the US Senate, she served as Attorney General of California (2011-2017) and District Attorney of San Francisco (2004-2011).

 

Harris’s political views are progressive and include support for abortion rights, legalization of recreational marijuana, protection of the environment, single-payer healthcare, DACA, sanctuary cities, humane treatment and protection for migrant children, LGBT rights, fairer taxes for middle-class and working Americans, and gun control.  She has an F report card from the NRA and she is opposed to the death penalty. On foreign policy, she believes that failure to work with our allies jeopardizes national security and that preemptive strikes against foreign governments, such as North Korea, without the authorization of Congress would be unconstitutional and illegal.

 

Kamala Harris  was born on October 20, 1964, in Oakland, California.  She attended Howard University and the University of California Hastings College of Law.  She is married and has two stepchildren through her marriage.
