Assemblyman John McKeon (D-West Orange) endorsed U.S. Sen. Cory Booker’s presidential campaign on Friday.
“I have known Senator Booker since his days as a Newark City Councilman and he remains one of the hardest working, passionate and committed public servants I have ever had the chance to work alongside,” McKeon said. “Throughout his career he has been a tireless advocate for the people of New Jersey, fighting nonstop for the issues that matter must to us. I have no doubt he will do the same as President. “
Booker forwent an exploratory committee and launched his campaign outright early Friday morning.
