Democrat Cory Booker, campaign optimist, exits White House race

Washington: Citing a lack of funds, US Senator Cory Booker dropped out of the Democratic presidential nomination race on Monday, a move that leaves a less diverse field vying to face Donald Trump in November’s election.
“It’s with a full heart that I share this news,” Booker said in a statement on the eve of the last Democratic debate before Iowa kicks off the nomination voting on February 3.
“Our campaign has reached the point where we need more money to scale up and build a campaign that can win -- money we don’t have, and money that is harder to raise because I won’t be on the next debate stage,” Booker said. (AFP)
