Technically We Are Going Over the Fiscal Cliff

According to Politico…

The House is not scheduled to vote on any fiscal cliff package on New Year’s Eve, so the United States is technically going over the fiscal cliff, but perhaps only for a day or two if the White House and congressional leaders can win enough support for passage of a tax package already being negotiated between Senate leaders and the White House. Timing for House and Senate votes remained unclear with just a few hours to spare before 2012 ends.

Cory Booker For Senate….

Well, I guess Cory Booker made his decision  and it will be BookerForSenate.com

This should be a slam dunk for Booker, Democrats are established in NJ and with the blessing of Frank Lautenberg this is a walk in the park.  I just hope Booker is able to complete the majority of tasks as mayor of Newark; downtown Newark is on the way up and I hope whoever follows Booker as mayor will be able to continue that momentum.

As always….

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!

Cory Booker For…..

Cory Booker

A couple of months ago I started hearing rumblings about the possibility of Mayor of Newark, NJ Cory Booker running for Governor of New Jersey in 2013.  Booker is a rising political star in the Democratic Party, a 2013 run against political heavy weight (no pun intended) current NJ Governor Chris Christie would be a daunting task.  Personally I think Booker would lose as Christie is very popular in NJ (a state which is Democrat).

but it looks like Mr Booker is keeping all of his options open as he climbs the political ladder, according to The Washington Post

Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D) is reportedly leaning toward a 2014 Senate run rather than a 2013 gubernatorial bid. Meanwhile, records show Booker’s fundraising adviser and former City Hall staffer purchased the web domains for  “BookerForSenate,” “BookerForGovernor,” and “CoryBookerForPresident.”

Hmmmm….

To be honest I don’t who are what seats are up, but I would like to see Booker as governor before becoming a senator.  The executive leadership (running a state) would strengthen Booker’s resume where he could compete with anyone.  At the end of the day whatever Cory Booker decides it will be an interesting race as he is a charismatic individual who connects with the people.

As always….
