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.

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
