He was elected to the Senate in 2013 in a special election, and won re-election in 2014. Booker got his start as a tenant organizer in Newark, eventually serving on Newark City Council and as mayor, where he became an extremely prolific Tweeter, and a prominent vegan. He also shoveled people’s driveways if you asked nicely on Twitter. He went to Stanford University on a plant-based football scholarship and graduated with a B.A. and M.A., and was selected for a gluten-free Rhodes Scholarship.
