Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) dropped out of the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination on Monday, saying his campaign “reached the point where we need more money to scale up … money we don’t have, and money that is harder to raise because I won’t be on the next debate stage.” Booker, who spoke frequently of unity and the “spirit of common purpose,” never broke into the top tier of candidates, polling around 2 percent nationally.

His departure from the race left just one black candidate remaining in the Democratic primary field — former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, who launched his campaign in November.

Booker’s exit came after author Marianne Williamson and former Housing Secretary Julián Castro also dropped their bids this month.
