It's a shame that tonight's #DemDebate won't reflect the diversity of our party. I'm not going to be on the stage, but our pathway to victory is still very real. If you're with me, chip in now so we can keep spreading our message to voters:
As we gather with loved ones for the holidays, a haunting story of the violence migrant families face trying to secure better lives. In this season of love, I pray we find the empathy to change our immoral immigration policies. This is a crisis in our power to end.
Cory Booker added,
The United States asylum policy is to demand children sleep on the streets in Mexico in encampments while tricking them because they're never going to give them asylum. This is pure evil trickery happening on our watch with little awareness & outrage.
We must drive investment and economic opportunity in rural communities that have been left out and left behind by the Trump Administration. Every region of America—not just a few cities along our coasts—should share in our country's prosperity.
John Dingell devoted his life to public service, and he continues to inspire today. Grateful for his example and for @DebDingell continuing to build on this remarkable legacy.

Thank you for the outpouring of support yesterday. I found John’s own words from year ago about President George H. W. Bush. They are an anecdote for the last few days and I hope you’ll read them. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/opinion/2018/12/02/john-dingell-may-bush-inspire-us-remember-our-history/2183581002/…
I was in Iowa last night making calls to voters who were frustrated that we talked more about wine caves than gun violence or reproductive rights during the #DemDebate. We can’t tear each other down if we’re going to beat Trump & get rid of McConnell—that's what I'm focused on.
Discrimination has no place in our nation. We must stop this despicable HHS proposal that uses taxpayer dollars for programs that allow discrimination against LGBTQ people, religious minorities & other marginalized groups.

Hey folks, I need your help. There's a bad situation right now with Trump's Department of Health and Human Services. First, I'm going to tell you what happened, and then, I'm going to tell you what we can all do about it immediately. (thread)
.@CoryBooker: "Let the politics take care of itself. This is an American moment, not a partisan one. We should do our jobs, all of us to do our duty, even though this President seems to have betrayed his." #AMRstaff
From Iowa to Nevada, New Hampshire to South Carolina, and every place in between, volunteers are the heart of this campaign. Remember—if you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together. Thank you for spending your evening with me talking to voters!
Cory Booker is phone banking in Iowa tonight as other Democrats debate in Los Angeles. The first caller, Suzette, seemed to express frustration that Booker wasn’t onstage tonight, judging by his end of the conversation. He agreed, “it’s frustrating to me as well.”
.@CoryBooker may not be on the debate stage, but he's on the world stage just the same. Here at his central Iowa HQ, there's national media, a huge crowd of supporters here to phone bank, and soon, Cory himself!
Don’t know which sounds better - the excitement of first time phonebankers reaching out to their neighbors or the sound of folks to signing up to see @CoryBooker in action on this week’s Cory Booker for America bus tour #Cory2020
We can’t just beat Trump—we need to regain the Senate & send McConnell home. Our party’s candidate must be able to revive the Obama coalition & win diverse states from Arizona to North Carolina. That’s what I bring to this race & why my campaign is now seeing a surge in support.
As this process heads to the Senate for trial, I'll uphold my sacred oath to protect & defend the Constitution.
This trial demands an impartial & thorough review of the evidence. We must be presented with relevant witnesses & documents, and follow the evidence where it leads.
The three-month House impeachment process has uncovered alarming evidence that an American president used his official power for personal gain, put our national security at risk, and obstructed the investigation.
Today is a sad moment for our country.
One year ago, our bill, the First Step Act, became law—a major bipartisan win to help end mass incarceration.
When I got to DC, they said we couldn’t reform our broken justice system, but by building uncommon coalitions we got this done, saving lives.
Women of color have been on the front lines of movements—and in front of the line at the voting booth—in this country. Honored to know many of these trailblazers and grateful for the work they do fighting for our democracy. Congrats, well deserved!
