Cory Booker and Steve Lonegan have won their respective primaries and will now compete for Frank Lautenberg's former Senate seat. New Jersey has not sent a Republican to the Senate in 40 years, so the race appears to be Booker's to lose.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie named state Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa as a place holder and set a special election to replace the late US Sen. Frank Lautenberg. In a heavily Democratic state, Newark Mayor Cory Booker is the one to watch.
