New Jersey Senator Cory Booker’s campaign continued to lose momentum in the previous weeks; with the left-wing legislator begging Facebook users for $1 to help finance a “full team in this campaign.”
“Hello everybody, it’s Cory Booker speaking to you from our campaign headquarters in Newark, New Jersey. I’m asking for your help. We need folks to chip in $1. Can you pitch in $1 today to help us make sure we continue to have the resources we need to field a full team in this campaign?” asked Booker.
“With your help, we are going to continue to make strides in winning the nomination,” he added.
Beto O’Rourke’s campaign hit a similar snag on the campaign trail this week; where he spoke to less than 20 people in Oklahoma.
“Great being in Tulsa tonight for an important conversation about fighting dangerous efforts to roll back reproductive health care, working to ensure we achieve equal pay, and mobilizing to finally ratify the Equal Rights Amendment,” posted O’Rourke on social media.

The failing candidate confirmed last week that he’d “absolutely” do a Fox News town hall; directly rejecting Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s flat-out refusal to speak to the most-watched cable news network in America.
“Absolutely,” O’Rourke told supporters in eastern Iowa. “This campaign is about going to where people are, and you see that physically in where I show up. But it also has to be in those channels or those social media streams where people get their news and their information. That also includes Fox.”
“Very open to doing that,” he added, though stating his campaign was not currently in talks with the news network.
