“It’s gotta be within the next two weeks” Booker told host Bob Schieffer on CBS’ Face The Nation.

“I am absolutely considering running for governor as well as giving other options consideration.”  When asked if the Senate seat was one of them, Booker said “I’m actually looking at that as well.”

Booker recognizes that many are waiting for him to decide on his plans to run for Governor in 2013 or try to win the U.S. Senate seat held by Frank Lautenberg in 2014.  “[T]here are a lot of very good candidates for governor in New Jersey on the Democratic side and I have to give my party and be a part of my party’s push forward, whether me as a candidate or supporting other candidates for that office.

Appearing CNN’s Piers Morgan program on Friday,on  Booker said he believes Christie is “vulnerable” despite his popularity in the polls. John Wisniewski, Chairman of the New Jersey State Democrat Committee took himself out the 2013 race for Governor on Saturday.

The Democrat was partisan when it came to the fiscal cliff, blaming Republicans for holding the country hostage “to protect a couple of percent of our population.”
