Boteach Pal Booker Wins Senate Seat in NJ

Now, that’s how you write a Jewish Press news brief! Old time close friend of our regular contributor Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and Newark Mayor, Democrat Cory Booker, easily defeated his Republican opponent in Wednesday’s special election, and will serve the remainder of the term of late Senator Frank Lautenberg, who died in office in June at the age of 89. So, in a way, the seat remained Jewish.

With 99 percent of the precincts reporting, Booker had 55 percent of the vote to 44 percent for Steve Lonegan, a Republican former mayor of Bogota, N.J., and state director of the conservative group Americans for Prosperity, according to The Associated Press.

Of course, the freshman Senator will have to hit the ground running, since Lautenberg’s term will expire next year, and the champ will have to earn his title one more time.

    Boteach must have been born in Chelm! To support Booker to represent New Jersey when he doesn't live in the state?
    Shame on Boteach to vote a party instead of a candidate's credentials.

    I don't have a problem with Booker other than that he and Boteach are friends, for some unknown reason.

  4. Why are some Jews… Not Republicans ?

    Booker is proabortion and violates Jewish law
