Newark mayor Cory Booker has released his first television campaign ad for the New Jersey Democratic race for U.S. Senate.

This ad is his first foray into the primaries which conclude on August 13th. This ad is titled “Run”, and features Booker listing some of the successes he’s had tacking problems as mayor.

“I’ve proven that by bringing people together, even with big problems we can make big progress,” says Booker in the video. “Washington ducks our problems, I won’t.”

Booker is competing against his fellow Democrats Rep. Frank Pallone, Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver (D-East Orange) and Rep. Rush Holt to win the seat of the late Frank Lautenberg who passed away earlier this month.
