"It is not a matter of "can we, ' it's a matter of 'do we have" the collective will, the American will?"
"I saw the receptivity to me giving my authentic message out there, not shying away from the urgent calls of justice, not shying away from the need to stand up for those who are being left behind and left out", he said.
The 49-year-old Booker released an online video to his supporters stressing the power of the collective will of the American people to "channel our common pain back into our common objective". "Together, America, we will rise". After the speech, Booker plans to make several campaign stops in Iowa, which holds the nation's first presidential nominating contest.

He has campaign stops planned in Iowa on February 8-9, followed by a trip to SC on February 10-11 and to New Hampshire later in the month.
Other contenders include former United States representative John Delaney, South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg and Julian Castro, who served as secretary of Housing and Urban Development under former president Barack Obama.
Last year, he announced he would no longer accept corporate PAC money; some progressives have been skeptical of Booker for the support he has received from Wall Street donors.
