Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) blasted the Democratic Party in a speech on Friday, saying that the party seems to have lost its way.

Booker was telling a story at NetRoots Nation about how, during his first campaign for elected office, he was offered some sage advice from a community leader.

The community leader told Booker that he needed to go out and actually meet with the people of the community he hoped to represent.

“I think a lot about the Democratic Party nationally, and how it seems that that connection to people where they are – what their experiences are, their struggles, their hurt, and their pain – how we seem to have lost our way,” Booker said. “What we need to be doing is reconnecting ourselves to folk where they are.”
