Just when you may wonder “what do Menendez and Booker do for the people of New Jersey?” we’ve been given the answer. They are waging a war against beach umbrellas. According to this release on Menendez’s web site Menendez wrote a letter to Elliot Kay, Chairman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, co-signed by Booker, asking what safety standards are in place regarding beach umbrellas, problems with specific beach umbrella products, and what it is doing to ensure the public is properly educated of the risks and dangers of beach umbrellas.
U.S. Senator Cory Booker has said he is considering a run for President in 2020. Booker has consulted with presidential campaign strategists who worked for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Recently he visited 24 states while campaigning for Democratic candidates in the mid-term elections including early primary states and states predicted to be battleground states. In October New Jersey lawmakers enacted a bill “Cory Booker’s Law” that would ensure that no one could legally challenge Booker running for President and his Senate seat simultaneously. According to a Morning Consult/ Politico poll Booker is ranked sixth among Democrats’ preferences for their 2020 candidate. All of this begs the question between Booker, Menendez and Murphy hasn’t New Jersey suffered enough embarrassment?
