Democratic Sen. Cory Booker is running for president in 2020.
Booker -- who grew up in Harrington Park -- made the announcement Friday in a video.
“I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind ... where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame,” Booker said. “Together, we will channel our common pain back into our common purpose. Together, America, we will rise.”
His contenders include Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), former Barack Obama Cabinet member Julián Castro and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii).
