PHILADELPHIA – Cory Booker says he loves his day job.
Asked by NH1 News if there’s a role for him next year the administration if Hillary Clinton wins November’s presidential election, the senator from New Jersey and Democratic Party rock-star said I’m going to stay in the Senate no matter what. I think I can best serve Sec. Clinton in the Senate and I just love my job and I’m excited about the years ahead in my term.
Booker spoke with NH1 News on Thursday morning, minutes after giving a passionate address to delegates at the New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine delegation breakfast.
Booker, who’s a top surrogate for Clinton and was considered as her running mate, urged the activists in the audience to “get folks off the sidelines and into the game.”
And he added that “this election is about not individuals. It’s not about Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump. It’s about who are we going to be as a people.”
Booker joined Clinton on the campaign trail in the Granite State leading up to the first-in-the-nation primary, and he said he may be back during the general election campaign.
“I really hope so. I’m literally going to do what the Clinton campaign tells me what to do. If they want me to go to New Hampshire, it’s a place that I’ve now fallen in love with, so I hope to come back,” Booker added.
Booker was also asked if he’ll return to New Hampshire in the 2020 or 2024 cycles to campaign for his own White House bid.
“Well I tell you what. You’re going to see me no matter what. It’s a tradition now. God knows what the future holds but I know I’m going to keep fighting for Democrats,” Booker answered.
