Newark Mayor Cory Booker is downplaying a possible run for the U.S. Senate next year.

Last month, the mayor filed federal paperwork in preparation for a senate run.

During an interview on ‘Face The Nation’ Sunday, Booker said he will focus on lending support to upcoming elections in the Garden State before turning his attention to his own run for Senate.
