“But my focus really is New Jersey and my state,” he said.

Booker said Tuesday he was “pleased” he was vetted as one of Clinton’s choices. 

The senator also said that he would consider endorsing a candidate in the primary, but did not signal any that he’s leaning toward. 

"I definitely will consider it, 100 percent. Right now, I am gonna take a breather,” Booker said. “I'm gonna focus on the impeachment trials. And I have a reelection campaign.”

Booker ended his campaign Monday, acknowledging that he no longer had the resources to continue in the race. 

“It was a difficult decision to make, but I got in this race to win, and I’ve always said I wouldn’t continue if there was no longer a path to victory,” Booker said in an email to supporters.
