“As a person who grew up in New Jersey and raised my children there before we moved here, I don’t know what’s in Sen. Booker’s record that he’s going to be able to point to and say ‘let me bring this to the entire nation,’ ” she added.
Conway’s comments followed shortly after Booker announced that he is running for president in 2020. The former Newark, N.J., mayor is joining a crowded Democratic field, which includes fellow Sens.

Booker’s highly anticipated announcement came on the first day of Black History Month.
“I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind; where parents can put food on the table; where there are good-paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood; where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame,” he said in announcing his candidacy.
Booker, who had long teased a possible 2020 run, began calling fellow lawmakers, including senior members of the Congressional Black Caucus of which he is a member, to drum up support.
