Late last week, 2018 congressional candidate Hirsh Singh announced his intention to oppose Sen. Cory Booker (D) next year, as we reported yesterday. Now, healthcare business consultant Tricia Flanagan has also declared her intention to seek the Republican nomination.
Largely, the Republican nomination here is not a particular prize. Sen. Booker, though he probably won’t become the Democratic presidential nominee, will be a lock in his Senate re-election bid from one of the nation’s more Democratic and expensive states (in which to campaign). Sen. Booker will be safe for re-election regardless of who the Republicans ultimately nominate.
