Booker kicking off 'Justice For All' campaign tour in Newark

Posted: Updated:
NEWARK -

Saturday is the official hometown kickoff for 2020 presidential hopeful and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker.

Booker's first rally kicks off his two-week "Justice For All" tour.

Booker says he's been seeking social justice in the Senate through marijuana legalization efforts, environmental justice with the legacy of polluters in poor and black communities, and criminal justice with his criminal justice reform bill, which was signed into law by President Donald Trump late last year.

Gov. Phil Murphy, first lady Tammy Murphy, Sen. Bob Menendez and Newark Mayor Ras Baraka are all expected to speak at the rally.
