NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Cory Booker's path to Wednesday's U.S. Senate election in New Jersey has been a little bumpier than anticipated. Even Republicans had expected Booker to cruise to victory by a wide margin over little-known Republican Steve Lonegan. After all, Booker is a Democrat with a growing national profile in a Democratic-leaning state. But the charismatic Newark mayor has faced sustained Republican criticism in a race that has exposed vulnerabilities that could hamper him should he seek even higher office someday. Booker and Lonegan are running a special election to replace former Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who died in June.
