Cory Booker met with county chairs  in New Jersey on Thursday to inform them that the years of speculation about a clash between himself and Chris Christie may finally be coming to a head, Politicker NJ reports. Last month Booker said that he's weighing whether he should challenge the Republican governor in 2013 or go for Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg's seat in 2014, and sources say he indicated today that he'd make the decision by December. Either way, Christie might want to start rescuing people just to be on the safe side.
