Cory Booker picked up a block of endorsements today from fellow New Jersey Democrats.
Democrats from Hudson, Passaic, Bergen, and Essex County came together to pledge their support for Booker in his race to become New Jersey’s next U.S. Senator. State Senator and Budget Committee Chair Vinny Prieto says it is Booker’s experience as Mayor of Newark that makes him the best candidate.
“Mayor Booker is somebody that can hit the ground running when he gets to Washington and be a consensus builder that’s what we need, and him being the mayor of the largest city in the state of New Jersey is something great to have under his belt.”
Prieto pledged to get the vote out for Booker in the upcoming special election and says together with Senator Bob Menedez they will make a stellar team in Washington.
