US Senate candidate Cory Booker with Mayor Dawn Zimmer in Hoboken

Fresh off an overwhelming victory in the Democratic Primary for the US Senate seat, Newark Mayor Cory Booker came to Hoboken to thank voters downtown at the PATH station.

It's not Booker's first visit to downtown Hoboken, he's previously attended a fundraiser for Mayor Zimmer.  Today he was thanking voters who gave him a landslide win in Hoboken.

Booker will go up against Republican candidate Steve Lonegan in October to complete the term of the late Senator Frank Lautenberg.

Mayor Zimmer officially launches her re-election bid tonight with her at-large council slate at Little Town on Sinatra Drive.
