Jon Bon Jovi Endorses Cory Booker “He’s the Right Leader for This Moment”

Cory Booker’s campaign has been struggling as of late.

Most polling has Booker in the low single digits. In addition, he recently warned if he did not reach fundraising goals he could end his run. 

However, at least Booker has rocker Jon Bon Jovi is lending a helping hand. The icon best known for his band’s singles “Living on a Prayer” and “Dead or Alive” praised Booker as the “right leader for this moment” in a glowing endorsement and fundraising email.

Bon Jovi and Booker apparently have a relationship going quite a ways back.

2009 Mayor Cory Booker and Jon Bon Jovi cut the ribbon to open HELP Genesis JBJ Soul Homes in Newark’s North Ward.

This 51 unit apartment building provides community computer labs, art gallery, graphics facility and an environmentally-friendly “green” roof to its residents many of whom will have some special need. The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation and HELP USA provided most of the funding for this development.

Breitbart reports Rock icon Jon Bon Jovi dubbed bottom tier Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) the “right leader” to take on President Donald Trump in November 2020.

“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 said in an email soliciting donations for Booker’s fledgling campaign. “He is the right leader for this moment.”

“Cory needs all of us to step up right now so we can hit his $1.7 million end-of-quarter goal,” said the email, which came on the heels of Sen. Booker’s campaign manager, Addisu Demissie, warning that “without a fundraising surge to close out this quarter, we do not see a legitimate long-term path forward.”
