Rep. Holt Slams Booker in Ad Ahead of New Jersey Senate Primary

Senate seat made vacant after Sen. Lautenberg's death


Rep. Rush Holt (D-N.J.) is launching an ad blasting Newark Mayor Cory Booker as "no progressive" in the final week of the special election primary to replace the late Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg.

POLITICO reported over the weekend that Holt had purchased about $350,000 worth of TV air time in the Philadelphia and New York media markets.
