Down both Booker and Jeff Zucker's 15-year-old son, as well as any noticeable user base, Waywire was acquired "primarily with equity" in a small deal that does not reflect the star power the Newark mayor brought to its investor group (i.e. Eric Schmidt, Oprah Winfrey). Booker's lead in Wednesday's special Senate election, meanwhile, is still ten points. It goes to show: You win some and you distance yourself from some.
