Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) advised his fellow candidates on this week that they should be attacking President Donald Trump instead of each other.
Booker made the remarks at Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate after multiple candidates took aim at Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
“We’ve got one shot to make Donald Trump a one-term president,” Booker cautioned. “And how we talk about each other in this debate actually really matters.”
“I’ve had the privilege of working with or being friends with everybody on this stage and tearing each other down because we have a different plan to me is unacceptable,” he added. “I have seen this script before. It didn’t work in 2016 and it will be a disaster for us in 2020.”

And they signal an unsettled field with voters far from coalescing around a single candidate less than three months before the first votes in Iowa.
The Monmouth University poll marks the first time that Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana and at 37 the youngest candidate in the race, has topped a statewide presidential survey, firming his stature in the crowded battle to challenge President Donald Trump.
