Cory Booker Officially Files to Run for Senate

Mayor Cory A. Booker of Newark has taken his first official steps toward running for the United States Senate in 2014.

Mr. Booker, who had announced his interest in pursuing the seat long held by a fellow Democrat, Frank R. Lautenberg, filed a statement of organization with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday, registering the Cory Booker for Senate campaign.

The filing gives little information about who is involved with the fledgling campaign or how much money has been raised; it notes party affiliation (Democrat) and a treasurer, Judith Zamore, who is based in Washington.
