Booker wins New Jersey Senate race
Oh great. Another NJ liberal. Just what the Senate needs.
Check it out:
New Jersey Democrat Cory Booker on Wednesday won the state’s special Senate election – keeping the open seat for his party.
“Thank you so much, New Jersey,” Booker said on Twitter. “I’m proud to be your senator-elect.”
The Associated Press declared Newark’s high-profile mayor the winner over Republican Steve Lonegan, 55-to-44 percent, with 99 percent of polls reporting.
In a speech later to supporters in Newark, Booker spoke, as he often does, of the unity of the American people.
“That’s why I’m going to Washington — to take back that sense of pride. Not to play shallow politics that’s used to attack and divide but to engage in the kind of hard, humble service that reaches out to others.
