Get ready to hear more from Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) over the next two years.

Immediately after voting against Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, Booker headed to Iowa where he used Kavanaugh’s confirmation to stoke presidential speculation.

What are the details?

Speaking to 1,400 Democratic activists at the Iowa Democratic Party’s annual fall gala, Booker revealed his presidential chops, offering progressives a message of hope in light of President Donald Trump’s record of accomplishments.

“It is not a time to give up, it’s a time to get up, to rise up, to speak up. It’s time for you not to wait for hope, but to be the hope,” Booker said, according to the New York Times.

“Hope is the act of conviction that despair can never have the last word. We’re not defined in this state by Republicans in power; we’re defined by how we respond to them. We’re not defined by a president who mocks a hero, Dr. [Christine] Blasey Ford. We’re not defined by a president who doesn’t believe women,” he added, the Washington Post reported.

During his 45 minute speech, Booker panned Trump while addressing American ideals and touching on iconic American leaders, such as Martin Luther King Jr.

However, Booker did not specifically address the Kavanaugh confirmation fight. Instead, he framed “the defeat in the context of previous liberal setbacks and struggles,” the Post reported.

In all, Booker drew four standing ovations.

Is Booker running for president?

Booker has not yet announced his 2020 intentions. However, all indications point to him making a run at the White House beginning next year. When media asked if Saturday’s event was meant to stoke presidential speculation, Booker deflected.

“I do need to get in shape. So I will probably go jogging here in Iowa in the morning,” he said. “In all seriousness, we’re here to focus on the elections that are coming up in 31 days.”

Booker also responded directly to Trump, saying: “I have nothing personal against the president.”

The trip was Booker’s first to The Hawkeye State since campaigning for Hillary Clinton there during the 2016 presidential election.

    1400 in the audience; that’s a small amount. Cory reminds me of a cross between baby Huey and George Castanza.

    Corey Booker you are a sham! You grew up in a beautiful upper middle-class neighborhood – Harrington Park, NJ -went to Newark NJ where you had a better chance of winning minority votes. Look at the mess Newark is now!

    Cory Booker is a Lying Pervert that should be forced to resign from Congress. Why is the MeToo Movement not attacking this self acknowledged Rapist. He had the nerve to write about Sexual Assaulting Women. Is everyone afraid of being called a racist because he’s a black man. It didn’t stop the attacks on 82 year old Bill Cosby.
    Or, are you all Hypocrites and like Cory choose who’s life you want to destroy with lies and conspiracy?

    I don’t give a damn what color he is if the bastard rapes a woman the SOB should be castrated. Let’s put this law on the books, both the man and the woman are hooked up to lie detectors. If they lie it’s 5 years in prison, if they are guilty of rape they are castrated. If a person breaks the law with a gun, their gun rights are taken away, if they break the law driving, they lose their license.So a rapist should lose what he breaks the law with.

    Yep, that alone makes him a leading democratic candidate… Rock bottom and still digging!
