The Inevitable Is Upon Us: Cory Booker Will Declare Senate Candidacy

Forced to expedite his plans by a year or so by Chris Christie’s special electioneering, Newark Mayor Cory Booker is expected to formally declare his candidacy for U.S. Senate tomorrow. (Weather permitting.) Unsurprisingly, he’s already scooped himself on Twitter.

If (and when) he wins in the October special, he’ll have to run again in November of 2014, when Frank Lautenberg’s term would have expired. [Yahoo!]
