Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker announced today that he will run for the Senate in 2014.

The popular mayor enjoys remarkable nationwide name recognition, but even fellow Democrats grumble that he makes a better pundit and personality than he does a day-to-day manager. While it had been rumored that Booker would run for Governor, many top Democratic leaders told reporters they pushed him to run for the Senate instead - a better place to pontificate without being responsible for daily operations.
