New Jersey Senate Race - My9 New Jersey

New Jersey Senate Race

Posted: Updated:

Bill chased the story about the upcoming United States Senate Special Primary Election. He followed Cory Booker and his campaign bus to a local meet-and-greet where he got to see how voters respond to the Mayor of Newark and treat him like a rock star. 

Bill had the chance to talk to Booker's brother who claims that this is how Cory has always been and that people just gravitate to him.  Voters at the event were surprised at how relatable Booker was. The event was not so much about the issues surrounding the campaign but more about getting to know people of New Jersey and encourage them to get out and vote. 

Booker has to get through Steve Lonegan, running in the Republican Primary who doesn't really have much of a real challenge and is likely to win.  Kate met up with Lonegan on his campaign tour where unlike Booker, he was all about discussing the tough issues.

He's going out for small business owners and throwing bombs at Booker who is likely to be his opponent in the Special Senate Election, stating that the Mayor underreported his income and that he is too dependent on Silicon Valley money.

In addition, Sibile followed Republican Candidate Frank Pallone on his campaign stops in Sayreville, and Ronica was on a mission to meet up with Democrat Rush Holt as he hit the campaign trail as well.  

Back in the studio the Chasers debate whether or not Lonegans knack for politics can beat Booker's celebrity status in the polls.

    Should New Jersey towns get into the mortgage business? Two long-time Irvington New Jersey residents, Mary Whetstone and Yves Louis, say that the mortgage crisis in town has gotten out of control and something has to be done. “Every block there’s one or two or three, foreclosures on it. And if it keeps on like this, every house is going to be foreclosed,” Whetstone said.

    By now you’ve probably seen how Chasing New Jersey is always trying to figure out new ways to get the perfect shot. You’ve seen the Chasers in planes, blimps, boats and often recording in their cars. But have no fear; the Chasers are not putting themselves or fellow motorists at risk by driving and recording themselves at the same time.

    Carmageddon, the lord of all traffic nightmares was predicted yesterday morning due to the closure of the northbound Pulaski Skyway. What was supposed to historically be the worst Monday commute ever, thankfully turned out to be just the opposite. Now many motorists are wondering what all the fuss was about.
