After a tenacious fight for the special election seat of the New Jersey United States Senate, Newark Mayor, Cory Booker, was elected on October 16, 2013.
Much like President Obama, who lost his grand mother days before the election, Booker’s father did not get the opportunity to see his son elected as a U.S. Senator. He passed just days before the election.
Nonetheless, I am truly excited and blessed to have had the opportunity to fundraise for Booker and spread his message throughout the world via social media. Congratulations Senator Booker and I look forward to more fascinating things to come from you.
