Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey did not discuss any 2020 ambitions in his speech at the New Hampshire Democratic Party's post-midterm victory celebration.

Headlining the event Saturday in Manchester, Booker said the country needs "courageous actors who call to the conscience of our country."

The jam-packed two-day trip is thought by some to be a tune up for the Democrat's potential presidential campaign.

The likely presidential contender is also set to speak at activists' gatherings in Nashua, Concord and Keene.

Booker kicked off his trip at a Nashua cafe, greeting and taking selfies with breakfast customers.

Booker, who said he'll assess over the holidays whether or not to launch a White House campaign, told the Associated Press that the trip is "really helpful to me in understanding what a potential presidential campaign would be about."
