Presidential candidate Cory Booker has qualified to participate in the third round of Democratic debates, according to his campaign.
More than a quarter of the donors came after the first debate in June, his campaign said.
“We’re building this campaign the right way, brick by brick from the grassroots up, and we’re seeing the results of that strategy as we continue to build momentum,” Addisu Demissie, Booker’s campaign manager, told CNN. (RELATED: Cory Booker: Sometimes I Feel Like Punching Trump)

Booker joins six other Democrats who have qualified for the fall debate, which requires candidates to pass a donor and polling requirement. Former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris will be participating in the third debate. South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rouke have also qualified for third debate spots.
Candidates have to reach 2% or higher in approved polls and have a minimum of 130,000 unique donors to qualify for the September debate.
Booker will be attending the second Democratic debate Wednesday, joining Biden, among others, on stage.
