Zuckerberg Plans Fundraiser for Cory Booker’s Senate Run

Facebook Inc. co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, will give Newark Mayor Cory Booker some help in his U.S. Senate bid, which the New Jersey Democrat plans to formally announce today.

Booker, 44, will enter the special-election race to replace Senator Frank Lautenberg, a five-term Democrat who died at age 89 on June 3. The mayor plans events in Newark and Willingboro Township, according to Kevin Griffis, a spokesman.
