Cory Booker’s campaign for the 2020 Democrat nomination is handing on by a single thread, and if he doesn’t earn $1.7 MILLION by the end of Monday, he’s out!
So, for some reason, 80s hair band singer Jon Bon Jovi just took it upon himself to endorse Cory Booker, calling him “the right leader for this moment,” in an email to solicite donations for Booker.
Here’s the email, signed Bon Jovi:
Unfortunately for both Bon Jovi and Cory "Spartacus" Booker, folks are sick of liberal celebrites spouting off politics!
Many patriots quoted Bon Jovi's own hit song back at him in reference to Booker's dying campaign:
Other "deplorables" essentially told Bon Jovi to stick to music!
CBS News had the following to say about Bon Jovi's endorsement of Booker:
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Jon Bon Jovi is playing a tune that transcends beyond the music realm. The rock star traded in his guitar pick for a computer keyboard Saturday to urge Senator Cory Booker's supporters to donate to his presidential campaign.
The email tells recipients that the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful "needs all of us" to help him hit the $1.7 million goal by the end of the campaign fundraising quarter, which ends Monday.
"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," Bon Jovi wrote in the email. "He is the right leader for this moment." Booker's presidential campaign manager wrote a memo to staff and supporters Sept. 21 stating he lacked the "tens of millions" of dollars from other campaigns to help with the presidential bid." As of 9:05 p.m. Saturday, Booker was about $168,400 shy of his fundraising goal, or about 81% there.
Breitbart has more details on Bon Jovi's past relationship with Cory Booker:
The “Livin’ on a Prayer” crooner and New Jersey native has long-supported Booker’s campaign. Jon Bon Jovi and his wife, Dorothea, together donated $5,600 (a maximum amount) to Booker earlier this year and hosted a fundraiser for Booker’s campaign at their Hamptons home in August.
“To put it simply, I think Cory Booker is a great man who would do an amazing job in the White House,” Bon Jovi’s email said. “I’m lucky to call him a friend, and all of us would be lucky to call him our president.”
Booker currently sits near the bottom of nearly every national presidential poll.
