Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Booker admits lack of financial support putting his White House bid at risk”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey suggested Saturday that his struggling campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination could soon end over lack of support.

Mr. Booker said that his presidential campaign needs to raise nearly $2 million within nine days to remain viable.

“This isn’t an end-of-quarter stunt,” Mr. Booker said on Twitter. “We need to raise $1.7 million by September 30 to be in a position to build the organization we need to compete for the nomination—and we can do it—but if we don’t, we don’t see a legitimate long-term path forward.”

“We can’t continue this without more support,” Mr. Booker told CNN later Saturday. “I won’t continue this unless I can look people in the eye and say we have a chance to win it.”

Mr. Booker’s campaign manager, Addisu Demissie, separately wrote in a memo posted online Saturday that the deadline will determine whether or not he can remain in the race.
