Booker talks Israel, taxes and charters in press briefing

BY David Cruz, Senior Correspondent |

After the first event in his Justice for All Tour in Sioux City, Iowa, Sen. Cory Booker took questions from local and national press.

Booker answered questions on whether — and when — he would release his tax returns, whether he was concerned about his fundraising efforts so far and questions about his support for Israel and a proposal by Prime Minister Netanyahu to annex portions of the West Bank. The senator was also asked about his support for charter schools vs. public schools.

Booker spoke before an audience of 100 or so Iowans at the Sioux City Public Museum.
