Sen. Cory Booker suspended his campaign for president this week, dropping the number of Democratic candidates for president down to 12. Tuesday, Booker joined "CBS This Morning" answering questions about the lack of diversity among the remaining candidates, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders' war of words, and the state of discourse in the country. Booker said he is "very concerned" about the lack of diversity in the field and an all-white debate.
"We are a better nation when we bring hidden figures together with white male astronauts, that's how we defied gravity and went to the moon. And the Democratic party, which represents the true rainbow coalitions of America has got to do a better job of getting more candidates at all levels, supporting a system that doesn't benefit Big Money but Big Values," Booker said.
