Cory Booker Calls Democratic Platform Alteration An ‘Unfortunate Omission’

Newark mayor and Democratic platform committee co-chair Cory Booker stopped by CNN’s Starting Point Thursday morning, where he shared his thought on his party’s platform change with host Soledad O’Brien.

The vote, he said, was made after an effort to add back the language Democrats had used for years within their platform, “convention after convention,” and called the change an “unfortunate ommission.” He also made note that, on the other side, the candidate does not believe with his own party’s plank regarding abortion and abortion exceptions.

“Sometimes as bad as it might seem,” he added, “[There are] imperfections. [There are] mistakes made.”

Booker also advised others to “not create a partisan issue out of a nonpartisan issue.” All this is, he continued, is “a simple omission that was corrected by the Democratic party.”

He also noted that he found the morning show talk surrounding the issue “a little over the top.”
