The Associated Press has declared Newark Mayor Cory Booker the winner in Wednesday's special U.S. Senate election.
Booker defeated former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan, a Tea Party Republican, to serve out the remainder of the late Frank Lautenbergs term.
Although the race was close early on, Democrats were quick to declare Booker the winner. Only 40 minutes after polls closed at 8 p.m., the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee was declaring victory. A short time later, state Sen. Barbara Buono, who is running against Governor Christie in the Nov. 5 election, offered her congratulations to Booker.
When it rains it pours, I suppose.
Thanks, New Jersey, you’re awesome!
Apparently nobody gives a damn anymore.
Looks like a 12 point differential. That’s an improvement for the GOP in Nj.
Princess Clinton/Booker 2016.
Talk about a bad day. I’d hate to ask, can it get any worse? But often the answer to that question is more bad news.
Its Joisy. I hope it cost Booker a bunch of Obamabucks.
We’ll see. Seems the jackasses jumped fast with their announcements.
Stupid, stupid NJers.
How many precincts in Newark and other major cities received 110% turnout?
If you can call it good news, just look at the debt clock. Imagine that hanging ominously over New Jersey. these people will get the government they deserve.
Enjoy NJ... you are owned by the left, controlled by the left and condemned by the left.
Keep talking! I’m lovin’ it!
The New Jersey cesspool provides us with another floater.
