New Jersey Senator Cory Booker recently threw his hat into the 2020 presidential race. Sen. Cory Booker faces stiff 2020 election competition in the democratic party from Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Bernie Sanders. If Cory Booker 2020 is successful and wins the primary, he’ll face Donald Trump in pursuit of the White House. In this video on criminal justice reform, prison, and mass incarceration in the Unites States, Booker explains how the war on drugs created problems in our system and hurt a lot of people. This drug war, which was even championed as recently as Jeff Sessions, is top of mind for Booker.
