He certainyl has, which is why this election is a joke. The fact that Fulop supports both Booker and the resurgence of someone as corrupt as McGreedy is shaking people's confidence in him already.

I do not think Booker needs votes from Hudson county he has already won here. Like it or not.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker pocketed 'confidential' annual payouts from law firm while in office: "Booker, the front-runner in New Jersey?s Senate race, received five checks from the Trenk DiPasquale law firm from 2007 until 2011. During that time, the firm raked in more than $2 million in fees from local agencies over which Booker has influence."

My conversation with a stranger on the train talking about Cory Booker:

Me: "overheard you talking about voting for Cory Booker, why are you voting for him?"

Her: "because he's great, very inspirational"

Me: "inspirational? Why so?"

Her: "because he's just great. He's done a lot for Newark?"

Me: "he has?? I didn't know that...can you tell me more about something specific he's done?"

Her: "ummmm, well, he's like, made the city better and stuff"

Me: "oh that's cool, how has he made it better?"

Her: "well, he like, he turned it around and ummmm its nicer"

Me: "right but how? What specifically did he do to make that happen. And what exactly is 'nicer'?"

Her: I dunno, he's just awesome!

EXACTLY....SMH....

Who's winning the race between Newark and Jersey City in murders? Maybe these two should spend more time getting that under control than running down the shore and schmoozing with Oprah.

Steve Fulop runs with Cory Booker in Jersey City to remind voters about Tuesday's primary

By Rafal Rogoza / The Jersey Journal
August 10, 2013 at 3:54 PM

As part of his race for the U.S. Senate, Newark Mayor Cory Booker put on his running shoes and with Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop joined a group of downtown Jersey City residents for a noon jog and a scoop of ice cream.

Joggers took off from City Hall, 280 Grove Street, with Booker trailing the group because of an injury forcing him to power walk the 1.5-miles to Torico, a popular homemade ice cream shop at the corner of Erie and 1st Streets.

Dubbed a "Run with Cory in Jersey City", the former Stanford University wide receiver turned down the idea of racing Fulop, a former Marine and Ironman triathlete, and instead the duo settled on a jog followed by a brief meet and greet with voters over some frozen treats.

"If there was a tofu hot dog eating contest I'd win," said Booker, drawing a laugh from the roughly fifty people who gathered in front of City Hall to participate in the event.

Booker, whose seeking the late Frank Lautenberg's seat in the Senate, is facing off in Tuesday's primary against U.S. Rep. Rush Holt Jr., Assemblywoman Sheila Oliver and U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone. Polls show Booker is favored to win the nomination.

The winner of the Democratic primary will face either Alieta Eck or Steve Lonegan, both Republicans, on Oct. 16

During his remarks Fulop said Booker has what it takes to revitalize a stagnate Senate, adding that once he is elected the state of New Jersey will be the only state represented by an African-American and a Hispanic.

Bridget Buckley, 35, a downtown resident who says is active in the community, decided to participate after she received an e-mail from Fulop about the event.

"The primary is in three days, it's a good way to come out and show our support," she said.

Before the jog Booker visited Hoboken, and as part of day two of a five-day statewide bus tour, is scheduled to make appearances later today in Teaneck, Clifton, and Hackensack.

Cory Booker meets with voters in Jersey City

By Terrence T. McDonald/The Jersey Journal
July 24, 2013 at 9:45 PM

Newark Mayor Cory Booker greeted commuters in Jersey City today as part of his campaign to win a U.S. Senate seat in October.

Booker, appearing with Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop, shook hands with riders and posted for pictures with them at the top of the escalator at the Grove Street PATH station.

Bergen Avenue man Ahmad McKinney, 54, said he happened to be in the area for an eye doctor?s appointment when he ran into the crowd circling the two mayors at Grove Street Plaza.

?This is amazing,? McKinney said. ?Not only is he a great mayor, but he was a great wide receiver at Stanford.?

Booker, who wants to succeed the late Frank Lautenberg in the Senate, is facing off in an Aug. 13 primary against U.S. Rep. Rush Holt Jr., Assemblywoman Sheila Oliver and U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone. Polls show Booker is heavily favored to win.

On Oct. 16, the winner of the Democratic primary will face either Alieta Eck or Steve Lonegan, both Republicans.

McKinney said he plans on voting for Booker both times.

?Of course I am. I voted for Fulop, too,? he said, mispronouncing Fulop?s name.

Br6d - I like that you went on a limb here - it is dangerous to poke the cult of Corey but your selections raise super valuable points.

fat-ass-bike - genius idea! a reality show would be so much more fitting than the "news" coverage they enjoy.Quote:

Please note, however, that I speak not for Booker's character or personal traits; he seems to run a clean lifestyle and wouldn't a liability on that front. However, he greases the wheels for Obama's agenda big time. Ask Newark's citizens just how well of a job he's done, those opinions might contradict many of the political ads you see.

Yes.


I'm the guy who started the Barack Obama for President thread on JC List way back in 2007. I didn't expect him to work miracles but I didn't expect a Republican. Which is what he is. And what Bill and Hillary Clinton are. Yes, the Republican Party is worse. But the Democrats are fucking us too. They serve corporations, not us.

10 F-16s sent to Egypt is just the latest. It's not to help Egypt, it's yet another gift to our government's bosses, the Military Industrial Complex.

Riiiight, because Barry and the dems have done a bang up job so far. Between spying on all Americans, illegally using the IRS for political advantage, getting the Middle East totally wrong and the soon to be train wreck of Obamacare, who could vote otherwise??

But you're right, the Republicans are out to control women's wombs and put a gun in every one of our hands.

You can't be serious. Does Kool-Aid taste good?

(and before the political hacks out there brandish me a right wing nut, back up. I'm no republican)

In the end, keeping a democrat in Lautenberg's seat might generate more good than Booker staying in Newark for another year or two, but it's a departure from his MO.


For the Senate, in 14 it would be a much harder run against a GOP incumbent, or even harder against a Dem incumbent in a primary. Christie won't have to step down to run for pres, so there's be a Gov seat open only if he wins (god forbid). Running now is a no brainer.

if I remember right, during the election, the Guardian couldn't stop writing about how Romney was the best dude ever, and Obama was terrible and was going to lose the election in a landslide.

So I'm pretty sure they just like to bash Obama and liberals, no matter how they do it. Maybe they'll call them socialists, or maybe they'll call them corporate whores. Whatever works at the moment.
