Cory Booker wins re-election to U.S. Senate

U.S. Sen. Cory Booker easily won re-election Tuesday to a second six-year term in Washington.

The Associated Press called the race for Booker shortly after the polls closed at 8 p.m.

Booker, the first Black elected to the Senate from New Jersey, defeated Republican Rik Mehta, according to the Associated Press.

Booker's Senate win comes after his unsuccessful presidential primary bid, which was suspended in January 2020 before Booker officially endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in March.
