TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Aides to U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan in New Jersey have taken down a social media post that Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s campaign says was offensive.
Lonegan is the GOP front-runner in the Senate primary Tuesday. Booker is the Democratic front-runner.
A tweet Thursday by the Lonegan campaign said, “Just leaked — Cory Booker’s foreign policy debate prep notes.” It showed a map labeling parts of Newark “West Africa, Guyana, Portugal, Brazil” and other nations including Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Booker’s campaign manager called the posting “offensive and fundamentally out of step with New Jersey values.”
Lonegan aide Rick Shaftan said the post, which also appeared on the campaign’s Facebook page, was taken down at Lonegan’s request when he became aware of it Thursday night.
