Against the backdrop of a Democratic Party waiting for his decision on governor, Newark Mayor Cory Booker did not break the big news on this morning's Face the Nation.
He confirmed he's thinking about a run for governor, and said he intends to make a decision within the next two weeks for the good of his party, but stopped short of an announcement.
"Yeah, I am absolutely considering running for governor as well as other options," said Booker.
"Within the next two weeks," he added when Bob Shieffer asked him for a timeline.
The Newark mayor said he wants to be fair to others who may want to run against Gov. Chris Christie.
"Especially in New Jersey, there are a lot of good candidates," he said.
"I'm looking at that a lot as well," he added, when Face the Nation's host asked him about a Senate seat.
