    Booker was already mounting a primary challenge to Lautenberg before Lautenberg died. Booker wanted no part of a run against Christie.

Booker was never going to run against Christie. Why? Because he would have been badly beaten.
    You are correct and I am wrong about Kerry / Lautenberg. But I'm pretty sure I'm right about Booker - though admittedly my strongest memory from the timing of that is a Daily Show piece on it . I would run back and check sources, but I'm about to have to launch on a cross-country move, so I will concede until some other day. :

    Good luck with the move.

    I heard all day on the news that Booker was running in New Jersey to fill Lautenberg's seat. That is correct, and Booker won. I haven't heard who will fill Kerry's seat, but he's the Senator from Massachusetts, so who knows?

    Congressman Ed Markey took Kerry's Senate seat.

    You are claiming that the "left" does not tolerate opposing viewpoints. This is accepted as some sort of truism among conservatives, and it's a load of crap.
