Laura Litvan Bloomberg News Published 7:08 AM EST Feb 1, 2019 Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey announced that he’s running for the Democratic presidential nomination to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020, saying the nation needs to be able to see its leaders and “feel pride, not shame.” Booker, 49, a senator since 2013 and the former mayor of Newark, joins a growing Democratic primary field including fellow Senators Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Kamala Harris of California.

Rick Kelleher is a big, white-haired, crisply presented man who looks very much the way you’d expect a Boston Irish power broker to look. If you found yourself sitting next to him on a plane, you might notice how he kept the conversation flowing naturally and emphasized his points with the physicality of a great salesman, dramatically raising his eyebrows and cocking his head. On this morning, Kelleher is seated at a back table in the lobby restaurant of the elegant Boston Harbor Hotel, where the server knows exactly how he likes his house-smoked salmon. He carries himself as if he owns the place, and, in a way, he does.
