Booker wins Senate special election

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker is heading to Washington.

Booker has won a special election to fill the seat of Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who died in June at age 89. Booker defeated conservative Steve Lonegan after an aggressive two month race.

Lautenberg's term was only through 2014, so Booker would have to campaign again almost immediately to run for a full term.
