Booker files paperwork for 2014 Senate run

Newark Mayor Cory Booker has filed paperwork for a 2014 Senate run.

Booker, who announced last month he would explore a Senate run for the seat currently held by Sen. Frank Lautenberg, filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission earlier this week.

The paperwork was filed on Jan. 8 and lists Judith Zamore as treasurer for the “Cory Booker for Senate” campaign.

"It’s not a political environment that’s particularly warm for incumbents, but it looks like Booker has little to be worried about as the campaign season draws to a close."
