This would be a candidacy really worth getting excited about. Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) says he’s considering a run for the US senate seat of retiring Sen. Frank Lautenberg.
Holt has represents his central New Jersey district since 1999. Prior to that he was the Assistant Director of the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab at Princeton University.
Mayor Cory Booker and Rep. Frank Pallone have already signaled they intend to run.
