    Sen. Cory Booker is kicking off his first visit to New Hampshire with a personal touch, sharing his family's story with voters in the Democratic-leaning town of Portsmouth.

    An estimated 500 people attended the event, according to the campaign.  

    Booker is one of five sitting Democratic senators already running in the jam-packed 2020 presidential primary, but his optimistic message of unity promises to set him apart from others in the field.

    He recalled his parents' struggle to buy a home in a majority-white neighborhood in New Jersey in 1969 and urged the crowd to "put that indivisible back in this one nation under God."

    Booker is set to make five more stops during three days in New Hampshire, which casts the first votes in the 2020 primary next year.
