Cory Booker is one of the top potential candidates of the Democratic Party for the 2020 presidential election. Joining him on the list curated by The Hill are Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Massachusetts), Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vermont), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (Minnesota), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (New York), Michelle Obama, Gov. John Hickenlooper (Colorado), Sen. Chris Murphy (Connecticut), former VP Joe Biden, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo (New York).

But despite being eyed to represent the Dems for the highest post, the New Jersey senator candidly said he has not thought of running for the White House position for now. Booker, however, admitted to CNN's "The Axe Files" podcast that he would like to "unleash the fullness" of his ability to lead and address injustices.

"No aspiration for another office"

The Democratic senator said seeking for a higher post could compromise the current duty of a politician. Hence, running for the presidency has not crossed his mind at the time being. "If I start thinking about the future like that or engaging in that stuff ... I think it would make me a lesser of a senator," Booker told the news outlet.

He explained that he will remain dedicated to his current position until he reaches the end of his term. "I'm a guy that's going to criticise policies that, frankly, in a lot of states that are important for presidential elections would find that very much of a threat," the senator added.

Who is Cory Booker?

The 48-year-old leader entered politics through Newark City Council where he completed his term from 1998 until 2002.

Instead of seeking for re-election, Booker announced that he is running for mayor against Sharpe James, who considered him a threat to his longtime reign in Newark.

The former councilman lost the said election and decided to give it another shot in 2006. Booker finally won the seat against Ronald Rice, garnering 72 percent of the total votes. He also earned himself a reelection before he entered the U.S. Senate in 2013.

Booker announced his campaign for the Senate after Frank Lautenberg passed away. He became the first African-American politician to win a Senate position since Barack Obama in 2004. The Democratic senator was criticised when reports of him joining Senate Foreign Relations Committee were brought to light in November.

Some saw this as his tactic to polish his credits for his potential candidacy in the 2020 Presidential Election.
