Booker announced earlier Monday that he would suspend his presidential campaign. He failed to qualify for the last Democratic debate and did not meet the threshold to participate in Tuesday's debate, and the senator acknowledged he did not see a path to the nomination.

"I will carry this fight forward — I just won’t be doing it as a candidate for president this year," Booker said in an email to supporters.
