I’ve followed Sen. Booker off and on for a long time now; ever since he was an outspoken Mayor of Tony Sopranos stomping ground (Newark). Most recently I was extremely impressed with how he conducted himself in the Kavanaugh hearings–Especially during his “Spartacus moment” where he risked a lot of retribution and potentially the loss of his Senate seat just to fight for something he really believed in.
This man has beliefs and this man seems to be ready to fight for them. I am super impressed with him on the surface. We shall see how he matches up against my beliefs as we get further along in this process however.
One issue to look into is that I’ve heard that he takes a lot of money from big pharma. This is interesting and I’m not sure where that info is coming from since when I look at who gives money to him, it all looks pretty normal to me. That will require some digging.
Note: I keep saying that I’m going to dig into these candidates and I know I haven’t really done that yet, but I plan to.. Promise!
