TRENTON, New Jersey: Senator Cory Booker?

Newark mayor, Cory Booker, has filed paperwork to start a campaign for the U.S. Senate.[1] He has not said if he will challenge current Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg and Lautenberg has not made any announcements about his senate career.

Booker originally considered a run against Governor Chris Christie, but polls showed it would be a difficult campaign. Polls are more favorable in a match-up against Lautenberg.[1]
