TRENTON – George Norcross says the reason he’s backing Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s bid for the U.S. Senate is simple.
“He’s going to win,” Norcross responded during a Statehouse news conference Monday when asked by a reporter to explain his decision to back Booker.

“I think we need to put the best candidate forward,” he said, adding, “The candidate who’s going to win the election.”
