Booker More Likely to Make Senate Bid

Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D) "is leaning against jumping into next year's race for New Jersey governor and instead is having serious discussions about running for the U.S. Senate in 2014, according to three people familiar with the matter," the Wall Street Journal reports.

However, Booker "has been talking about the governor's race with strategists both steeped in New Jersey politics and independent from it, and he could change his mind at the last minute and still run for the state's powerful executive position next year, the people said."

Politicker notes Booker is still keeping his online options open.
