MIDDLE TOWNSHIP - Sen. Cory Booker was at the Rio Grande Diner in Middle Township this morning, Saturday, Jan. 25, talking to customers about the economy.

On the freshman senator’s Instgram account, he said diners blame the seasonal tourism economy for an increase in break-ins and heroin in Cape May County.

Staff at the diner say he was joined by fellow Democrats state Sen. Jeff Van Drew and Assemblyman Bob Andrzejczak.

Booker was elected in the fall to fill out the term of the late Frank Lautenberg, and faces another election in November.

This is his second visit to Cape May County this year. He also toured the Coast Guard training center and downtown businesses in Cape May. However, he did misstate the name of the town he visited on his Instagram posting, calling it “Middle County.” It was correct in his next post.
