Exclusive interview with Mayor Cory Booker

Newark Mayor Cory Booker spoke to a full Sanford crowd at Duke today. Afterward, Booker spoke to me in an exclusive interview. As we walked through a strong headwind along the Bryan Center Plaza, Booker discussed a wide range of subjects, including the direction he wants to lead Newark, criticism of him as a celebrity and the national notoriety of being an up-and-coming young, black politician featured in journalist Gwen Ifill's new book, The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.
