He isn’t explicitly mentioned, Save Jerseyans, and you never see his curly hair or slight frame in the first campaign TV spot of 2014 released by Cory Booker (D-Twitter), but a rudimentary Google search sets the issue to rest:

Cory is talking about his buddy… Rand.

“I mean it, and I did it,” Booker brags in the 30-second spot.

Did what? There’s a few things in the fire (e.g. he teamed with Tim Scott of SC on the LEAP Act), but Booker and Senator Paul made headlines and raised eyebrows when the odd couple partnered to support criminal justice reforms in the realm of “non-violent” drug crime. Interestingly, the move put Paul squarely in opposition with Booker’s 2014 general election opponent, Jeff Bell, who advocates a more traditional conservative approach to social issues ranging from drugs to gay marriage.

  1. @Ksenia Didn’t say it was necessarily a bad thing; just that it’s a thing exerting real influence in our politics.

  2. Booker shooting an ad from an abandoned building…very fitting, considering his terrible record in Newark as its failed mayor.
