#71 Cory Booker & Bob Menendez United States Senate, NJ Senators
How big an influence can U.S. senators have in their home state? In the case of Menendez and Booker, a lot. Both are maintaining their ties to New Jersey — especially Booker, who faces a re-election challenge in 2014. No doubt he'll use that to become a bigger statewide presence.
