Veteran state Sen. Ray Lesniak (D-20) wants Newark Mayor Cory Booker for governor and Elizabeth Mayor Chris Bollwage if Booker doesn’t run.
He said he’s unimpressed with Gov. Chris Christie, at least as a prospective presidential candidate, as the Republican incumbent heads toward re-election next year.
“It was a big flop,” Lesniak said of Christie’s keynote speech to the Republican National Convention last week. “He proved he was right when he said he wasn’t ready to be president.”
