Six New Hampshire state legislators have endorsed Cory Booker for the Democratic presidential nomination, including State Rep. Anita Burroughs (D-Bartlett), a New Jersey native.

State Reps. Linn Opderbecke (D-Dover), Lee Walker Oxenham (D-Plainfield), Katherine Rogers (D-Concord), Jeffrey Salloway (D-Lee) and Bruce Tatro (D-Keene) also announced today that they would back Booker.

Burroughs was born in Jersey City and grew up in Tenafly.  She represents Harts Location, a town with less than 100 residents which receives national attention every four years as one of the five New Hampshire towns that votes at midnight on the day of the presidential primary.

There are 400 members of the New Hampshire House of Representatives.  Democrats have a 233-167 majority.

The six join two State Sens. Jon Morgan (D-Brentwood) and David Watters (D-Strafford) in backing the New Jersey Senator for president.  Morgan and Watters are the only members of the New Hampshire Senate to take sides in the presidential campaign so far.

“Cory Booker is a committed public servant who brings experience, passion, and integrity to this race. When I saw him speak in Conway recently, I was moved by the way he brought people together and encouraged them to fight for justice,” said Burroughs.  “He’s a proven fighter who knows that beating Donald Trump is the floor, not the ceiling, of what’s possible for our country. Cory is a dedicated champion for Granite Staters, and is the best choice to lead our party in November 2020.”
