Senator Michael Bennet (Colorado), Chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, issued the following statement this evening on Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s victory in New Jersey: 

“Cory Booker is going to be a great Senator for New Jersey, and I congratulate him on his victory tonight. I look forward to working side by side with Cory in the Senate and on his reelection next November. As senator, Cory will have an incredible opportunity not only to serve his constituents and the country, but also to help Democrats across the country defeat the Ted Cruz loyalists who are running for the US Senate.

 “Tonight’s election is a repudiation of the Tea Party’s reckless agenda and a Republican party that grants too much influence to people on the fringes."
