Oprah Endorses Booker

"Cory Booker is a genius," Oprah Winfrey wrote in Time magazine in 2011. So, it's no surprise that she is backing the Newark mayor's New Jersey U.S. Senate bid and hosting a fundraiser. Booker so far is winning the money race and the polls, with $4.5 million in the bank and is leading the polls at 49 percent, ABC News reports.
