Media maven Sue O’Connell said nothing but positive things of Sen. Cory Booker, who ended his campaign for president on Monday, in a Wednesday appearance on Boston Public Radio.

"We just weren’t good enough for Cory Booker,” O’Connell said. “I don’t mean that in a snarky way at all. … I just think Cory Booker was, unfortunately, not the candidate for the times we have."

O’Connell continued to praise the senator, contrasting his views on college education with his former rival Pete Buttigieg.

"I’ve heard a number of columnists this week, after he pulled out of the race. … That Cory actually understands the LGBTQ experience better than Pete Buttigieg does,” she said, citing Buttigieg’s stance on free college education, which the former South Bend mayor has proposed barring from the wealthiest families. "Pete Buttigieg [has] not even for a moment taken into consideration that someone may want to go to college, and they may come from a wealthy family, but they may have been kicked out of their family because they’re gay.

“But Cory Booker, when he’s talking about his education plans, really takes into account all of the ways that people may need assistance.”
