Booker Favorite Among Livingston Voters

LIVINGSTON, NJ – The Township of Livingston released its statistics for the United States Senate Primary Vote today showing Cory A. Booker, mayor of Newark, as the Livingston victor for the Democrats and Steve Lonegan, former mayor of Bogota, as the Livingston Republican favorite.  Livingston votes reflected the overall primary election outcome as Booker and Lonegan will now face off to fill the last 15 months of the term left open by the late U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg.

According to the New York Times, if Booker wins he will be the country’s only elected black senator. During his victory speech at Championship Plaza in Newark, the New York Times quoted Booker saying, “Make me your senator, New Jersey and I will be unwavering in my focus on finding common ground. I will not be concerned with right or left but going forward.”

The New York Times also reported that in an interview Lonegan said he would focus his campaign on highlighting the differences between the two candidates. He was quoted as saying, “I intend to run a line-in-the-sand campaign between a conservative and an extreme liberal. The difference could not be clearer.”
