Cory Booker staying in Newark, mulling 2014 Senate run
In typical Booker style, the Newark, N.J. mayor announced his intention to finish out his term with a YouTube video and the hashtag #finishingthework.
Cory Booker will not challenge Chris Christie for the New Jersey Governor’s seat in 2013.
The mayor of Newark, N.J., instead promised to “finish the work we started,” and will see out his full term of office while considering a 2014 Senate run, he announced in a YouTube video.
Starting the video by proclaiming, “I love Newark,” Booker says serving as mayor has been the greatest privilege of his life.
Just days after a New York Times article attacked his record as mayor, Booker listed some of his accomplishments since taking his post in 2006. He claimed, for instance, that the population of the city is growing for the first time in 60 years and that he and his team “have led our city through its worst financial crisis in decades.”
Booker noted that he will consult with Senator Frank Lautenberg as he explores his Senate run, claiming it would be a “privilege, an honor” to continue Lautenberg’s “legacy of service.” Booker also plans to canvas hard for the Democratic ticket in New Jersey’s gubernatorial elections next year.
