Sharpton in Brooklyn, Newark

It’s going to be an eventful weekend for Al Sharpton.

First, he’ll be urging black leaders to coalesce in support of a single black candidate in the Congressional 11th, where Rock Hackshaw says Charles Barron is taking an interest as well.

And on Sunday, I’m told, Sharpton will be speaking at the church of his new ally Cory Booker in Newark, where the Reverend helped five-term mayor Sharpe James turn away a challenge from Booker four years ago.
