WASHINGTON (KELO) — Democratic Sen. Cory Booker has announced he is ending his presidential campaign Monday.

The New Jersey Senator tweeted “I am so proud of what we built, and I feel nothing but faith in what we can accomplish together.”

Booker struggled in polling and fundraising since launching his bid last February. Booker was unable to hit 5% support in a single qualifying poll required to make it on the January debate stage.
