Cory Booker

U.S. Senator, New Jersey

Some people run away from challenges. Cory Booker prefers to tackle them head-on. A Stanford graduate and Rhodes Scholar, Cory was elected Mayor of Newark, New Jersey — where he made significant reforms and balanced the city’s budget. He’s brought his energy and creativity to Washington, where he has co-sponsored progressive legislation such as ENDA and a bill to recognize the validity of all marriages.
