Booker’s Deputy Campaign Manager Donated to Rival 2020 Candidate’s Campaign

Jenna Lowenstein, who is the deputy campaign manager for Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-NJ) presidential campaign took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that she had donated to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) presidential campaign.

“I just donated to ensure @SenGillibrand’s important perspective is on the debate stage,” Lowenstein tweeted. “Join me!”

Lowenstein’s tweet was in response to a tweet by Gillibrand’s deputy communications director, Emmy Bengston, who suggested that the topic of abortion might not even come up during the 2020 primary debates.

“It is not a given that abortion will come up at the 2020 primary debates. It is not a given that every candidate will defend reproductive rights as fiercely as @SenGillibrand,” Bengston tweeted. “We need her on that stage. If you agree, make sure her spot is guaranteed.”

Unlike Booker, Gillibrand’s presidential campaign has not yet met the requirements outlined by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to qualify for a spot on the debate stage.

In order to qualify for the upcoming debates, “candidates must garner donations from at least 65,000 unique donors or hit at least 1 percent in three approved polls,” according to The Hill.
