A listless start by comparison for the other senate hopefuls in New Jersey's special election. "Did you see how unexcited Pallone looked when he said he was excited?"
"Do I have to answer in less than 140 characters?"
Standing alongside Sen. Bill Bradley, Booker made the case against D.C., but promised not to go negative. "I do not run from challenges — I run toward them."
"America's favorite mayor" may be favored to win the New Jersey Senate race, but his opponents are working overtime to stop his momentum. What could go wrong for Booker, and right for Pallone and Holt.
"For several months now, Mayor Booker has been taking the steps necessary to run," the mayor's office says.
