Sen. Booker says impeachment talk is premature
MINDEN, Nev. (AP) New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker has become the first 2020 presidential candidate to campaign in rural Nevada.
The parade of candidates visiting the early caucus state routinely goes through Las Vegas and, sometimes, Reno and Carson City.
But Booker went to Minden on Friday, where he told about 100 people jammed into Douglas County Democratic headquarters that everyone should visit the town 15 miles (24 kilometers) south of the state capital city.
The former Newark mayor says he's the only presidential candidate who was a chief executive of a city and also served in Congress.
He says his push for economic justice and affordable health care would benefit Americans of all walks of life.
Nevada's caucuses next February follow New Hampshire and Iowa as third in the nominating process.
