WHO: Cory Booker is one of five senators vying for the Democratic nomination who may be marooned in Washington as a juror in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial — instead of being in Iowa for the important, first-in-the-nation caucus. Despite drawing good-sized crowds in early voting states, Booker has struggled with fundraising and to break into the top tier of candidates in the polls. With less than a month until the Iowa caucuses, time may be running out for his campaign. Booker stopped by for an interview with Julie Pace on Ground Game to explain why he says he’s “in this to win it.”
