Oprah Winfrey is holding a fundraiser for Newark, NJ, Mayor Cory Booker in his bid for the U.S. Senate to fill seat vacated by the late Frank Lautenberg. Winfrey’s fundraiser will be held in Thursday in Jersey City. The tickets range from $1,000 to $2,600 and 200 people are expected to attend.
Oprah Winfrey called Cory Booker a “rock star mayor” on her show. Reminds me a lot of her support of then-presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Polls show Cory Booker as a front-runner in the race. The primary election is scheduled for August 13.
