Booker still in the Game

Since his early days in politics, Cory Booker has been known to take more selfies than Kim Kardashian. Now, on the campaign trail, Booker’s selfie game has only gotten stronger.

Though national polls show the junior senator from New Jersey at 2%, his popularity in the Palmetto state remains high. And as long as he continues to generate enthusiasm among South Carolina black voters, Cory Booker is still a contender. During a recent campaign swing through Columbia, Booker drew an enthusiastic crowd of considerable size. He laid out several policy proposals and made the case for his conciliatory approach to politics.

Fellow reporter Thelisha Eady and I caught up with Booker and asked him to delve deeper into why he is still in the game.
