Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D) has outraised his Republican opponent in New Jersey's special Senate election by 8-to-1, pulling in $11.2 million compared to Steve Lonegan's $1.35 million, according to The Star-Ledger. The fundraising total for Booker puts him on par with other top New Jersey politicians, including Gov. Chris Christie (R) and Sen. Bob Menendez (D), and solidifies Booker's celebrity politician status.
