Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker on Thursday said his decision on whether to challenge New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) in the state's gubernatorial election next year has been put on the back burner due to Hurricane Sandy, The Star-Ledger reported.
The Star-Ledger reported last week that Booker intended to finalize his plans by mid-December. Booker said on his radio show Thursday night that although Sandy pushed his timing back, he still plans to make a swift decision.
"I do believe I owe it to the Democratic party of New Jersey to make a decision very quickly," Booker said.
