It looks as if New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker’s ‘Spartacus’ moment during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings could have well been a launching pad for him to run for president.

Booker has been on the list of prospective 2020 Dems for a while, but the Guardian reports that he has placed staff in Iowa.

To think that Booker would use his platform in a Supreme Court confirmation hearing to launch a presidential campaign is … exactly what we all thought.

How can he not win with a platform built on angrily throwing a fit during a Senate confirmation hearing about documents that ended up later being not worth anyone’s time?
