Booker Opts Not to Run for Governor, Considers Senate Bid

December 20, 2012

Newark Mayor Cory Booker recently deemed New Jersey Governor Chris Christie "vulnerable." "Christie is vulnerable, as it should be, because there's a lot of issues in the state he's not falling in line with," Booker, a Democrat, said to CNN's Soledad O'Brien. Despite that assessment, it is likely the incumbent's high approval ratings dissuaded Booker from entering the gubernatorial race.
