SHOW TRANSCRIPT

U.S. Sen. Cory Booker has suspended his 2020 presidential campaign. 

"Today, I'm suspending my campaign for president with the same spirit with which it began. ... And so now I recommit myself to the work. I can't wait to get back on the campaign trail and campaign as hard as I can for whoever is the eventual nominee."

In a statement, Booker said his campaign had reached the point where it needs "more money to scale up and continue building a campaign that can win" — money he said it doesn't have. 

Booker served as the mayor of Newark, New Jersey, before he was elected to the U.S. Senate in a 2013 special election.

Marianne Williamson and Julián Castro have both also dropped out of the presidential race this month.
