What if the guy you endorse doesn’t want your support?

Newark City Councilman Hector Corchado, one of Mayor Sharpe James’ strongest supporters, endorsed Cory Booker for Mayor just a few hours before James announced he would not seek re-election — but there is no evidence that Booker cares. Corchado’s opponent in the race for the North Ward Council seat, former Board of Education member Anibal Ramos, is a longtime Booker supporter. Tomorrow, some key members of Team Booker, including Councilmen Luis Quintana and Augusto Amador, and former Councilwoman Mildred Crump, will join Ramos to “accept” his endorsement of Booker for Mayor and of the Booker Council slate.
