Cory Booker, the celebrity Newark mayor-turned U.S. Senator, has won another six years in the Senate.
The Associated Press projects that Booker, a Democrat who took office just one year ago after winning a special election, has defeated his Republican challenger, Jeff Bell, to win a full six-year term.
Booker’s win extends Democrats’ winning streak in New Jersey U.S. Senate races to 38 years.
Booker, 45, served as Newark mayor for seven years before winning last year’s election to replace the late U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.).
