Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) is officially running for president in 2020.

In a video posted to a newly-launched campaign website Friday, Booker said, "I believe we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind," and one where "our criminal justice system keeps us safe instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins." He concludes by saying that "we will channel our common pain back into our common purpose."
