Democrat voters may not be taking Senator Cory Booker’s presidential candidacy as seriously as he hopes. On Wednesday, Booker and several of his primary challengers attempted to outshine each other at a town hall on so-called climate change.
The New Jersey lawmaker detailed his proposal, which focuses on achieving a carbon neutral economy. Booker gave a timeline about reaching his ambitious goal along with the presumption he will be elected president next year. His pitch was quickly met by laughter from the audience.
