Booker Supports Christie's Property Tax Cap: Centrist Governance

Cory Booker Backs Christie Property Tax Cap

Newark Mayor Cory Booker is throwing his nod to Republican Gov. Chris Christie's 2.5 percent property tax cap, which the New Jersey chief executive has been aggressively selling at town halls around his state in his first six months in office.

Booker, one of the most prominent rising stars of the Democratic party, described it as Christie and other leaders "pursuing...a real remedy" to an issue that is driving people "from their homes and communities or out of the state altogether."

It's another sign of Democrats, forced by a lingering recession, moving center-right on certain fiscal policy issues.
