Report: Booker says he expects Dems to unite behind O’Donnell

Newark Mayor Cory Booker told the Huffington Post this weekend he believes that the New Jersey Democratic Party will unite behind state Sen. Barbara Buono’s (D-18) choice of Assemblyman Jason O’Donnell (D-31) as the next Democratic Party state chairman.

A 2014 candidate for U.S. Senate, Booker has maintained close public ties to Buono, who is running against incumbent Republican Gov. Christ Christie this year.

Neither U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) nor Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3) favors O’Donnell, but Buono has maintained that, in keeping with party protocol, she wants her own choice to serve as party chairman while she runs for governor.
