Bill Bradley mostly shut out in New Jersey during 2000 prez bid

Cory Booker’s list of more than 50 endorsements stands in stark contrast to the 2000 presidential race, when former U.S. Senator Bill Bradley mostly struck out in the New Jersey endorsement race.

U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg endorsed Al Gore early on and most of the state’s congressional delegation either backed Gore or stayed out of the race.

State Sen. Richard Codey (D-Roseland) chaired Bradley’s New Jersey campaign.  Former Gov. Brendan Byrne supported Bradley.

The night before Bradley’s major New Jersey fundraiser, most of the state’s political elite flocked to the Newark Performing Arts Center to see Kevin Spacey and Whitney Houston raise money for Torricelli.

Bradley represented New Jersey in the United States Senate from 1979 to 1997.
