In 2018, Politico identified him as part of a movement along with Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders, given he voted "to stop [the president's] nominees for administration jobs"; all of the Senators in this group were considered potential 2020 presidential contenders at this point in time.[7] That year and in early 2019, he began travelling early in the campaign schedule.[5][8][9]

After failing to qualify for the sixth debate and poor polling numbers, Booker ended his campaign on January 13, 2020.[10]
