Senator Booker (NJ) is a proud lifelong New Jerseyan. He attended Stanford, Yale Law, and University of Oxford and is a Rhodes Scholar. Booker was elected to the Newark City Council at the age of 29 and served as Newark’s mayor for over seven years. He has been a steadfast fighter for the people of New Jersey in his two terms in the Senate, and currently sits on the Senate Committees on Foreign Relations and on Judiciary.
In office, Booker helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote. Booker also introduced S. 1514, the Help Students Vote Act, which would require higher education institutions to distribute voter registration forms to enrolled students.
