Booker Won. On to 2014.

Now that Cory Booker has been declared the winner of the U.S. Senate seat, it’s time to start campaigning for next year when the full six-year term is up for grabs. PolitickerNJ has already posted Booker’s likely opponents:

Morris County Assemblyman Jay Webber (Lonegan supporter); Mr. Flat School Tax/Abbott District Enemy Assemblyman Mike Doherty; Woody Johnson, owner of the New York Jets and scion of the Robert Wood Johnson family; good ol’ Steve Lonegan, who has said he won’t run again (talk about credibility);  Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick, far more moderate that some of his colleagues; highly-respected Senator Tom Kean; another relatively moderate candidate, Senator Jen Beck; John Crowley, the subject of books and movies about his heart-wrenching search for a cure for his children’s genetic disorder, Pompe’s Disease;  Senator Joe Kyrillos, who has proposed bills that would abolish LIFO (seniority-based lay-offs), implement merit pay for teachers, and create a parent trigger law that would mandate that a failing school be closed or turned into a charter if a majority of parents vote for such a move; and Rev. Aubrey Fenton, whom his website describes as “an emerging spiritual leader who serves the Lord with character and competence.”
