HeadlineJul 01, 2020

McGrath received 45.4% of the vote; Booker received 42.6%. McGrath outspent Booker by a margin of nearly 10 to 1. Booker’s popularity soared in recent weeks as he took part in Black Lives Matter protests and spoke against police violence. McGrath will now face Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in November.
