NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Add Sen. Cory Booker to the growing list of New Jersey politicians who feels the state is getting slighted during this week’s Super Bowl hoopla.
Booker told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond that it is “disrespectful” when New Jerseyans turn on their TVs and hear announcers saying Super Bowl XLVIII is being played in New York.
