Corey’s Christo-Sized Coat-Tails

Newark Mayor-elect Corey Booker has political coat-tails so long they could be a Christo art installation.

Booker won in a landslide earlier this spring on a platform of clean government and school choice, and now the slate of municipal council members he has endorsed have won a clean sweep in yesterday’s runoff elections.

Booker and his fellow revolutionaries will face stiff opposition from the teachers’ unions and state legislators in their efforts to give Newark residents unfettered school choice, but they unquestionably have the city’s people behind them.
