Newark Mayor Cory Booker isn’t ruling out a run for the U.S. Senate in 2014.

According to TheGrio, Booker says that his name will not appear on the senate ballot in 2012 He says he doesn’t know what will happen in the next three years.  Booker says he’ll  never say never and wants to leave the door open on a possible run.

 Reports surfaced that Booker was positioning himself for a future senate bid, but it was unclear whether 2012 was a possibility.   

The mayor has since made it clear that 2012 was out of the question.

 There are reports that Booker has formed “CoryPac” a federal political action committee, which gives Booker fundraising leverage for the future.
