Sen. Cory Booker responds to 11-year-old girl who wants to join his campaign: 'This inspires me more than you know'

An 11-year-old girl has offered to help Sen. Cory Booker with his 2020 presidential campaign, which he announced on Friday. Booker tweeted the girl back hours later to accept her offer, and now the exchange has gone viral.

Benjamin David tweeted daughter Noa’s handwritten letter to the New Jersey lawmaker.
“Dear Senator Booker, I am glad you are running for presdint,” it reads. “I would be happy to help you. We met last year in your office. I am 11 and I wear hearing aids. I like the idea of a presdint who would be kind and caring. Please let me know how I can help you win!”

Within just a few hours, Booker had tweeted the girl and her father back to happily accept.

She may not be old enough to vote, but it sounds like Noa has scored her first job in politics. And Booker isn’t the only one who is inspired by her drive.

People on Twitter were also tickled by Booker’s response and heaped praise on him too.

Too early to recruit her as a running mate?
