Cory Booker loves Newark: Star Democrat says no to Senate run
There was a rumor earlier today that Newark Mayor Cory Booker, famous for his faux-feud with Conan O’Brien a few years back, was considering a run at the US Senate. Booker is, without question, one of the Democrats’ brightest national prospects, and one of our favorite politicians here at SFB. His candidacy would be a major coup for the party. However, Booker quickly swatted down the rumors, insisting that he’ll finish his term as mayor. While this is a disappointment for national Democrats, it says a lot about his commitment to Newark, and by extension, his integrity as a politician (Booker often turns down appealing offers in order to remain Newark mayor). Once his tenure in Newark is up, however, we can’t help but hope he’ll set his sights on higher office. Way higher, if you catch our drift.  source
