Today is the day when, to the surprise of no one, Cory Booker formally announced that he is running for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by the death of Senator Frank Lautenberg.
Booker’s announcement was in two parts – north and south – with a gathering in Newark this morning and Willingboro this afternoon.
Here are Booker’s remarks in their entirety. Booker is introduced by former Senator Bill Bradley (2:13), who in turn was introduced by Democratic Burlington County Freeholder candidate Reva Foster.
Booker’s remarks start at 8:51.
