Certainly all of Chris Christie’s new Democrat “friends” will be lining up to show their support should Newark Mayor Cory Booker decide to run against him. After all he was so helpful to them during this election cycle, especially with that slobbering Obama lovefest last week.
Oh wait, you mean to tell me Democrats would turn around and stab him in the back by supporting Booker?
Newark Mayor Cory Booker knows — better than anyone — that he has to make up his mind.
With the presidential race in the state’s rearview mirror, New Jersey’s leading Democrats have already shifted their attention to the state’s main prize — the governorship — and all the power that comes with it.
Two sources familiar with Booker’s thinking told The Star-Ledger he plans to decide whether to challenge Gov. Chris Christie — who has indicated he plans to seek re-election — by mid-December, leaving plenty of time for other potential Democratic candidates to mount a campaign.
“If Mayor Booker wants it, it should be his for the asking,” former Gov. James Florio said Tuesday night at an election night party for Democrats in New Brunswick. “He’s got the money and the name recognition.”
But Christie has all that residual love from Democrats for helping out Obama, so we’re sure they’ll all stand by him. Why, we’re sure even his hero Bruce Springsteen will be out stumping for him. Can’t wait.
