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