For years the image of who drives change in our democracy has reflected an old narrative of straight white men in smoky rooms.

Cory Booker Goes Hollywood

Cory Booker Goes Hollywood

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) is heading to Hollywood this month. The 49-year-old lawmaker is headlining a fundraiser for his 2020 Senate re-election campaign. However, this West Coast trip has already fueled speculation that Booker is seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. The fundraiser will be held at the home of Hollywood producer Simon Kinberg, according to NBC News. Tickets start at $150, with Chair-level donations at $5,000. Booker, who has been an outspoken member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has said that he’ll determine whether he's going to run for president in 2020 after the midterms. However, he’s already landed in Donald Trump’s line of fire. The president attacked Booker twice on Monday during a press conference in the Rose Garden at the White House and later at a rally in Tennessee. Booker is also scheduled to headline the Iowa Democratic party's fall gala on Saturday in Des Moines. Additionally, Booker recently interviewed filmmaker Spike Lee about BlacKkKlansman, police brutality in America, and Trump. Read that interview here
