Cory Booker ‘Seriously Considering’ Governor And Senate Bids


Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D) said Sunday morning that he is weighing runs for both the New Jersey Governorship in 2013 and U.S. Senate seat in 2014. Speaking to Bob Schieffer on CBS’ Face the Nation, Booker said he’d decide “in the next two weeks” if he was running for Governor. Booker is “the biggest player” in New Jersey Democratic politics, as he is “the only Democrat in the state who can match Christie’s star power and fundraising prowess.”
