Cory Booker Files for NH Primary Election

The New Jersey Senator was the last major Democratic candidate to file for the New Hampshire primary election

The last major Democratic candidate filed for the New Hampshire primary Friday.

Sen. Cory Booker may be polling low, but his energy was high at the statehouse in Concord.

He joked to Secretary of State Gardner that even though he has to be non-partisan, perhaps, Gardner could take the $1,000 check and donate it back to the campaign.

It was a funny moment on a day that furthers Booker’s ambitions for the White House.

Despite former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick entering the race and billionaire former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg likely to follow suit, Booker maintains that it does not affect him.

"I am running my campaign," he said.
