Plainfield delivers for Booker (with ward-by-ward results)

Unofficial results per City Clerk AJ Jalloh for U.S. Senate Special Election.

Plainfield voters delivered big time for Cory Booker in Wednesday's special election, helping to ensure the Newark mayor's victory over Republican rival Steve Lonegan for the US Senate seat left vacant by the death of Sen. Frank Lautenberg. The NJ Spotlight website aptly called it a 'showdown over the shutdown' (see here).

Municipal clerk 'AJ' Jalloh outdid himself by finishing and delivering the unofficial vote totals by email Wednesday evening. The results (see image at top of story) show Plainfield voters going 15-1 for Booker.

While the statewide total gave Booker the edge with 55% of the vote (see the NJ Spotlight online election map here), he is projected to carry Union County by 64% when all counting comes to an end.

Unfortuantely, County Clerk Joann Rajoppi's website does not yet have the unofficial numbers up yet, but Plainfield bids fair to repeat its performance in the special primary by giving Booker the most votes of any municipality in the County.

In the special primary this past August (see my post here), Plainfielders cast 3,372 of the 18,757 final vote tally for Booker in Union County, as noted by Assemblyman Jerry Green in his remarks at this past Sunday's rally.

Congratulations Cory!

Now the real work begins.

What is the "real work"? Raising the debt to what level? When is America going to get its fiscal house in order?

I sure hope Senator Booker likes to play golf.
