U.S. Senator from New Jersey. Most tweets (and typos) are mine, some are my team’s. He/him.
I've just returned my mail-in ballot for tomorrow’s primary election in NJ. Your ballot must be postmarked by July 7th or you can use one of the designated drop boxes in your county. You can find a drop box in your county here: http://bit.ly/2BJB9NJ
It was just a few weeks ago that we were experiencing the worst of this pandemic here in New Jersey. Fortunately, we've been able to flatten the curve. But it's going to take a continued effort from all of us to keep infections and hospitalizations down. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/new-jersey-hit-hard-coronavirus-sees-positive-signs-n1232435

It won't just 'disappear.' People are dying and we have a president who couldn't even be bothered to save them.
This was one of those moments in our history when the power of the people prevailed. Change doesn't come from Washington, it comes to Washington.
It is disgraceful how little this president values the heroic Americans who bravely choose to serve. He sold them out when he chose self preservation over credible intelligence. Never again can he claim he supports our troops. https://www.npr.org/2020/07/01/885909588/trump-calls-bounty-report-a-hoax-despite-administration-s-b...
It's not a power grab, it's justice. D.C. has been deprived of representation in our federal government for so long. The residents of the District deserve to have their voices heard. Now is the time for #DCStatehood.
Senate Republicans fiercely oppose DC statehood as a political "power grab" https://cnn.it/2YSRiJL
I'm honored to receive the endorsement of @AFSCME NJ Council 63 ahead of next week's primary. I stand proudly with these dedicated public employees in our state and am thankful for their support.
Ummm, yes. I've been saying.
Tonight, @John Hickenlooper officially became the Democratic nominee in Colorado's must-win Senate race. I've known John since back when we were both mayors. He's an innovator, a consensus-builder, and a leader who gets things done. Help send him to the Senate: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/jwh-soc?refcode=booker
Yes! Please let us talk more about baby bonds. This is how we can close the staggering racial wealth gap that persists in our country. We must make baby bonds a reality for every American child.
Mississippi's decision to remove the Confederate emblem from their flag is an important and overdue step. Next we should remove Confederate statues from the halls of our nation's Capitol. These symbols of white supremacist hate and terror need to go. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/tasneemnashrulla/mississippi-bill-remove-confederate-symbol-sta...

Decades after Roe v. Wade, abortion access is still under attack. While there's hope to be found in today's ruling, access to basic health services is still out of reach for millions of women. We need to elect leaders who will defend, protect, and expand reproductive health care.
Biden's strength/Trump's weakness across the Sunbelt is not only an ominous sign for Republicans in 2020, but for years to come.
