Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway blasted newly declared Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., as resembling a "Hallmark card" when he speaks in a Friday interview.
Speaking with CBS News, Conway commented on Booker's decision to run for president in next year's election.
"Well, the president has said before that Cory Booker, as mayor of Newark, had run the 'city into the ground.' So I'll let those comments stand," she said. "I think Cory Booker often sounds like a Hallmark card, and not necessarily a person who is there to tell you everything he's accomplished in the United States Senate and as mayor of Newark. So we'll wait to look at his record."
The field of Democratic presidential candidates is rapidly growing, with five major candidates already confirmed and several others likely to run as well. Conway noted that the Democratic primary season will be contentious with such a large field.
"I imagine that the crowded Democratic field of presidential aspirants will be attacking each others' records, or lack thereof. So we'll be sitting back with copious bowls of popcorn watching that," she said.
"But at the same time, as a person who grew up in New Jersey and raised my children there before we moved here, I don't know what's in Sen. Booker's record that he's going to be able to point to and say, 'let me bring this to the entire nation.'"
