“If he were a Republican running against them, they would immediately call him a sexist for running against these women in the Democratic field.”

Booker announced his campaign Friday morning, joining what is expected to be the most crowded Democratic primary field in modern history.

Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Kamala Harris (Calif.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) have already entered the race, with more women expected to join the pack.

Gillibrand welcomed Booker into the race, tweeting Friday “I'll be cheering you on—just, you know, not TOO hard.”

Conway doubled down on her speculation hours later, tweeting suggestions she says people would make if Booker were a Republican.
