British PM visits with Newark Mayor Cory Booker

NEWARK - British Prime Minister David Cameron visited Newark today and met with Mayor Cory Booker, before finishing his trip to the United States with a visit to New York City and the 9/11 memorial. Cameron arrived at City Hall in Newark this morning and was briefly greeted by Booker on the front steps before they headed inside to talk. Cameron told Booker he chose Newark "because of its education reforms and crime fighting initiatives." Booker called it an honor.

Cameron spoke briefly with the mayor about Booker's time in England as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, where he received a degree in modern history.

After meeting in Booker's office, the two leaders took a tour of the businesses surrounding Newark's Prudential Center.

The British prime minister heads back to the UK tonight.
