It’s New Jersey’s Primary Day, or as Booker Calls It, ‘Coronation Day’



Text  



Today is the primary election for New Jersey’s special U.S. Senate election, prompted by the death of Senator Frank Lautenberg. On the Republican side, Steve Lonegan and Alieta Eck are competing, with Lonegan favored.

On the Democratic side, Newark mayor Cory Booker is heavily favored against Representative Rush Holt, Representative Frank Pallone, and state-assembly speaker Sheila Oliver. 

Polls opened at 6 a.m., and are open until 8 p.m.

UPDATE: For the reader contending that Romney voters have no right to demand any candidate release his tax returns, a reminder:

YEARS OF TAX RETURNS RELEASED

Mitt Romney: 2

Cory Booker: 0
